About Us


Welcome to lawless.tech, an online magazine devoted to covering the ongoing regulatory attempts to oversee and control the newest technologies. Artificial intelligence, the internet of things, blockchain and cryptocurrencies, neural networks, distributed computing, and other innovative technologies are transforming the world we work and live in.

Governments have historically been unprepared for major advances in technology, and today is no different. The exciting new tech of today is truly lawless in that it is mostly unregulated. However, governments abhor systems outside of their control, so regulation of lawless technology is inevitable.

It’s a brave new world of technological innovation that we’re experiencing. However, there is no respectable data source on legal regulation of newest technologies, and thus legal issues and interaction with the state are often outside the attention of a startup founder, an entrepreneur, a computer geek, or even lawyers and regulators themselves.

To that end, lawless.tech is here to serve as your one-stop source of information to help you navigate the uncharted waters of innovative technology and the regulations being considered and/or implemented for this exciting new digital frontier.

Join lawless.tech as we separate the wheat from the chaff, expose what’s true and what’s not, and explore how regulations will impact the latest technological advances and what it will mean for your personal, financial, and business interests. Staying fully informed is vital, whether you’re just a crypto and AI enthusiast or making sure your business is in full compliance with the latest regulations. Buckle up as it’s going to be an exciting, wild ride.
