1. From article: “…private-share trading was particularly ripe for disruption because of the heavy volume of paperwork involved in recording and settling the transactions. …the measure should pave the way for US companies … to begin listing shares on blockchain-based distributed ledgers.”

    Why does this seem akin to the situation where mortgage holders could never find out WHO held legally their paper, because it had been electronically ‘sold-on’ many times without any review?

  2. Delaware? If you dig into the history of slavery in this country you will find a few unsettling facts regarding slavery, Massachusetts (and Delaware), New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Virginia. All you really need to do is start with a good timeline and walk through the history very, very carefully. It doesn’t surprise me this is starting here. I expect to see this spread to neighboring states in a similar order now that Delaware has made the first move.
