PART 1: INTRODUCTION
Gabe Shapiro recently proposed an experimental solution to the problem lawyers face when working within an anonymous network. The problem is that lawyers must represent specific individuals or entities rather than the public-at-large. I can’t say I legally represent the Ethereum community, for example, because the vast amount of ethical rules that guide my representation would apply to the millions of users around the world.
For instance, lawyers are prohibited from representing clients with conflicting interests under Rule 1.7(a) of the MRPC. So how would I even go about checking for these conflicts for every pseudonymous ETH address? …
Hello everyone! It’s been nearly a month since we opened up a Uniswap-based store.
The dynamics at play have worked out great, so let’s delve right into it. To recap, we wrote a series of blog posts about tokenizing products and using Uniswap’s dynamic pricing method. Uniswap first started doing this with collectible socks, which can be redeemed through purchase of their unisocks token. We thought this was very clever and quirky, and could be very useful for artisans.
We are pleased to announce the launch of Uniswag.io, an online market built to streamline the listing, sale and redemption of tokenized goods 🦄️ 📬.
Uniswag is a joint venture between Open, ESQ LLC, the first limited liability DAO and team of legal professionals developing next-generation services for digital orgs. (OpenEsquire), and Primal ETH, Inc. (Primal), a kindred limited liability DAO developing products to launch tokens and crowdfund with Ethereum smart agreements.
To get meta and flex our 3-D printer skillz, we are kicking off Uniswag with a listing of 50 Unirings, which are custom, limited-supply cryptoWearables designed to hold NFC chips and bear QR codes that can generate cryptocurrency payment requests, among other dazzles, literally putting web3 sovereignty at your fingertips…
Legal Rituals for enforceable promises can get fairly elaborate 🤝⛓.

Competing denominations of legal faith have made drafting enforceable promises even murkier, with law firms and similar market participants espousing their own brands of promise-keepers, or, Contracts.
Despite this legacy of paper chasing in business deals, the internet continues to liberate a great deal of contract law corpus and similar promise-keeping rituals, through what has been sourced through law firms themselves, such as Cooley GO and the Orrick Startup Forms Library, and by broader efforts like the NVCA model legal templates for venture financing. …

Hello again, dear reader! I made the most amazing curry last night because I finally purchased the Ghee (clarified butter) I needed to make it. The chicken has been slow cooking all night, making this one of the most savory batches I’ve ever created.
So I decided to sell it.
Okay, not really. I’m just using it for this demonstration. There’s not enough money in the world to pry this from my hands. …

Hello again, dear friends. It’s Rob here with another exciting installment of, um…
“Rob teaches you stuff.”
Sorry, I’ll need to work on that title.
Before we begin, I wanted to give a quick shoutout to OpenEsquire’s very own Ross “the Boss” Campbell, who’s presenting tonight at ETHBoston. …
This post isn’t legal advice. If it were, it’d be followed by a bill.
Hello my dear reader. Rob here with a fun tutorial that has to do with the origin of our company, Open Esquire LLC. We used the methods described in this tutorial to create a New York-based LLC that references a specific Aragon DAO in its founding documents.
Let’s get started by heading on over to https://mainnet.aragon.org/#/, where we’ll see the…

Hello again. It’s everyone’s favorite ring peddler, Rob, back with the final part of this series. To recap, in Part 1 we created an ERC20 token called “URING” that’s supposed to represent the purchaser’s right to redeem a ring from us.Part 2 introduced the reader to Uniswap’s dynamic pricing method, and argued that it’s ideal for scarce products.
Now comes my favorite part, which is creating seller liability. As you probably know, “liability” means being responsible for something by law. Normally people try to avoid liability, but without it nobody will trust us to deliver our product. We need a warranty, and OpenLaw is the perfect place to draft one. …

Hello again, dear reader. When we last left off, we just created 20 URING tokens and listed 19 of them on Uniswap exchange. The exchange then gave us this warning.

Hello everyone. My name is Rob and today I’m going to teach you how to tokenize a product and list it on Uniswap. As a prerequisite, you’ll need a MetaMask with enough ETH to pay for gas costs. How much is enough? It depends. I spent a total of about 0.002248 ETH, which is like less than $0.50, but gas price is always fluctuating. …
