Just because legal protections don’t exist doesn’t mean extra-legal ones can’t. Agorism predicts the emergence of an ecosystem of products and services that make participation in informal and black-markets faster, better and cheaper than our existing, state-based systems. They believe that “free-market (all-voluntary) methods will take care of the few criminals; finding them (investigation), arresting them (delegated protection), trying them (arbitration), and restoring lost value to the victim of the aggressors (restitution).” It’s hard to imagine a non-state based process for dealing with issues of justice in the physical world, but it's less hard to imagine an ecosystem of service providers emerging to offer these types of services to cryptocurrency users. The recent pilfering of tens of millions of dollars from a well-funded crypto-contract-defined investment vehicle known as “The DAO” has brought the question of extra-legal justice to the forefront of the cryptocurrency community. In this case The DAO, which is an acronym of decentralized autonomous organization, had a flaw in its cryptocontract that enabled a user to steal a majority of the investment fund using some clever code. But, since the legal terms of The DAO stipulate that the “The DAO’s code controls and sets forth all terms of The DAO Creation”, the user who took the money is legally protected by the fact that the code allowed them to perform the action. In this circumstance, “there is no real legal difference between a feature and an exploit. It is all a matter of perspective.” Had The DAO investors followed Konkin’s recommendations, they might not have gotten involved in such an enterprise without first acquiring insurance that would protect them from hostile actors. Konkin’s proposed solutions for an agorist future are bound to receive a new wave of attention, even though he died five years before Bitcoin was released.
