Core verticals

Digital Transaction Management (DTM)
The end of the analog paper era is fast approaching and in an ever more digital world, expectations rise. Effective processes are crucial to keep up with these expectations. Digital Transaction Management accompanied with blockchain technology provides an opportunity to remove the frictions in transactions that are inherent to processes that involve people, data and documents. All of this while increasing security and audit-ability.

LegalThings One currently supplies:
  • Cradle-to-grave employment processes
  • NDA Application
  • The Netherlands biggest notary network

Regulatory and Compliance
The world is becoming increasingly interconnected. But this globalization and digitization leads to increasingly complex regulatory and compliance requirements for (global) corporations. The governments who propose these regulations have to make sure their own processes are digitized in the right way as well.

LegalThings One currently supplies:
  • GDPR Compliance for insurance companies
  • Automation of transfer pricing documentation
  • Workload reduction on small- and petty crimes

Discover LegalThings One

Picture this. A contract or law visualized in such a way that it is understandable for both computers and humans. With Live Contracts, we enable equality of rights for all parties involved.

The LegalThings One Whitepaper gives an indepth description of the technical concepts behinds LegalThings One. Reading this paper requires some knowledge of computer engineering.

A Live Contract is an agreement that is formalized as a Finite State Machine. LegalThings One runs Live Contracts and stores information in a provable, immutable way on a public decentralized storage.

Ready to start building? The specifications contain the JSON schemas of all components of Live Contracts, as well as other implementation details like encryption.

The idea for Live Contracts has been lingering around for a while. Take for example the extant concept of Ricardian contract by Ian Grigg, an expert in hash chains and other cryptography topics, during the mid 1990s.

"We show that the fundamental legal structure of a well-written financial contract follows a state-transition logic that can be formalized mathematically as a finite-state machine"
— Mark D. Flood and Oliver R. Goodenough

Token distribution
Tokens are immediately available upon purchase. Excess tokens may be sold on the Waves Decentralized Exchange (DEX). You never spend LTO tokens. You only trade, lease or hold them.

Running a full node
Organizations can host their own, full node by holding enough LTO tokens. As an enterprise, you can integrate Live Contracts within your existing software platform. As a law firm or legal tech start-up, you can offer Live Contracts in addition to static contracts and other legal services.

Leasing your tokens
You may lease your tokens to any other node, allowing them to increase their interaction limit. Organizations may reward you for this by paying you (in USD or cryptocurrency) or by providing you free services. Leasing tokens to the node of the LTO foundation allows you to view and interact with your Live Contracts through independent means, so without relying on the system of the counterparty.

Token distribution

LTO Token

The LTO token represents a license. Companies and governments need these tokens to create, run and interact with Live Contracts.

Token holders are able to use the platform and network as long as they hold the tokens. The license is transferable. LTO tokens may be resold to any interested party by any means.

Why are we releasing tokens for an existing project?

We believe that Live Contracts can have a positive change on the world. Accomplishing this requires mass adoption. By tokenizing our license, we want to create an incentive for early adopters and a reward for the community that helps us push this technology.

In the long term, we envision Live Contracts becoming something bigger than our company. The project should grow to a self-sustaining crypto-economy for storing ownerless data. The LTO tokens are a first step towards this vision.

Past, present and future

The launch — with salmon and champaign

May 2014

Started in 2014 as platform to create, share and sign contracts in a digital way. After the success of our first company, we believed that DTM (Document Transaction Management) would be the next big thing after ERP and CRM-systems.

Pushing the last commits while driving to the client

May 2015

We released the first version of the LegalThings platform. This version introduced a document and form builder, a document management system, advanced user and permission management and digital signing.

Pushing the last commits while driving to our first client.

Explaining how a process can be defined as Finite State Machine

Jan 2016

For FIRM24 we had created software to run the procedures behind an incorporation. Other customers were also interested in these digitized procedures. We did a small pivot, now focusing on digitizing the contracts as finite state machine, rather than just signing.

Looking at a hash

Sep 2016

We have explored different methods of providing proof of signed documents. While other parties relied on trust and certifications, we wanted a better solution. We started using the blockchain for proof of existence.

Working on registering states on Ethereum

May 2017

We experimented with Ethereum Smart Contracts and found out that it could only be used for self-enforcing agreements. Inherent constraints make them unusable for legally binding contracts.
Instead, we found a much better solution in using our FSM in combination with the blockchain.

Team with Dutch Minister of Justice, Stef Blok

Sep 2017

During the blockchain hackaton organized by the Dutch ministry of Justice and Security, we demonstrated that a whole law can be digitized as a FSM and stored on the blockchain. This won us the first prize in the event which included the assignment to create the first digitized Dutch law on the blockchain.

6 Dec 2017

Our token pre-sale starts on the 6th of December. For 24 hours, the pre-sale is open only for members. You can register to be whitelisted and participate in this members-only pre-sale. After the whitelist pre-sale, we'll continue with a public pre-sale.

Dec 2017

We'll launch the LegalThings One platform as beta. All token holders will be able to use the platform. New content, like (live) model contracts will be added in the coming months.

Q2 2018

All tokens represent the full capacity of the LegalThings One platform. During this sale we'll sell licenses (represented by LTO tokens) for the platform.

Q4 2018

We'll publish the Live Contract syntax as open standards under the CC-BY-SA license. Software to run Live Contracts will be available under the MIT license. This will allow third-parties to to create and run Live Contracts without relying on LegalThings One.


To set precedence of the legality of data stored on the blockchain, we'll initiate trials in several countries. The following countries are candidates for these trials: United Kingdom, United States, India, Russia and the Netherlands.

About LegalThings One
About Live Contracts
Buying LTO
Trading LTO
Storing LTO

1. What is an LTO?

A LegalThings One (LTO) token represents a license and gives the holder a limited, non-exclusive, revocable license to interact with Live Contracts.

2. How many LTO will be sold?

There is a total supply of 100.000.000 LTO of which 70.000.000 LTO will be available to the market.

3. What happens if all the LTO sell out?

The limited supply of LTO tokens favours early addopters of the platform. Organizations that want to run Live Contracts and do not have LTO tokens, need to purchase these from the secondary market, possibly at a higher price.

4. What is the difference between a coin like Bitcoin and LTO?

Bitcoin is a crypto currency, in other words digital money. LTO is a license that you need to hold (not spend) in order to run Live Contracts.

5. Who are behind the LegalThings One project?

LegalThings was founded in 2014 by software and blockchain developer Arnold Daniels, tax lawyer Rick Schmitz and business economist Martijn Migchelsen.

1. Who can buy LTO?

Every individual, company or government body can buy LTO license tokens.

2. What is the price of an LTO?

The pre-sale price of an LTO was $0,25. During the main sale, the price will increase upwards from $0,50.

3. What currencies do you accept?

We accept:

  • Euro's (through iDeal & Credit Card)
  • USD (through Credit Card)
  • Bitcoin (BTC)

  7. Go to
  9. Insert your seed
  10. Finalize your registration
  11. Depending on your payment method, your tokens should arrive within 2 hours after the import
    *note: Bitcoin will likely take longer due to the confirmation time

1. Do I need a wallet for my LTO?

Yes you need a Waves wallet to store LTO in. However if you don't have one currently, you can create a wallet when purchasing LTO.

Warning: Do not use an existing Waves wallet on an exchange. Waves wallets on exchanges do not support holding LTO.

2. Why do I need a Waves wallet specifically?

A Waves wallet is the only wallet that can hold LTO, as the LTO token is issued as Waves Asset.

3. Can I use a hardware ledger?

Waves doesn't support hardware ledgers yet. This will change in the future.

1. When can I trade my LTO?

When the main token sale (our aim is for Q2 2018) starts, the LTO will become tradeable.

2. Where can I trade my LTO?

After the start of the main sale, you can trade LTO on the Waves Decentralized Exchange. Other exchanges will follow shortly after.

3. How does trading LTO compare to other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin?

There is no difference when it comes to trading. At the start of the main sale, you're limited to one exchange for trading however.

1. What is a Live Contract?

A Live Contract is a formal agreement that allows interactions from humans. It is formalized in a way that is understandable for both humans and computers. The contract only shows the rules and presents the available options.

2. What is a Token-as-a-License (TaaL)?

Contrary to traditional licensing, token based licensing allows you to use the same licenses for different products and when the need arises. As tokens are sold or purchased on exchanges, the license is also transfered, so more users can use the software for a limited time.

For more information read the article on Hackernoon.

3. How many tokens do I need for a service?

  • Create Live Contracts : 5 per week (1,000 LTO)
  • Live Contract pre-package (10,000 LTO)
