In this talk, Jason Allen explores the agentive nature of "smart contracts" used to structure the relations between persons involved in a collective undertaking, i.e. in constituting a "body" capable of collective action without (human) organs.
Jason thus seeks to frame, and jurisprudentially ground, the study of decentralised autonomous organisations (DAOs) as a new form of collective undertaking by reference to the an-thropology of magic, speech act theory, social ontology and the history of the corporation.
