What is the Internet of Agreements?

The Internet of Agreements™ is the bridge between the internet and the deals, contracts, rules and regulations that support our lives. As the web has accelerated the spread of ideas, and e-commerce has changed how we buy and sell, IOA will give us new ways to specify, manage, and execute agreements between people, businesses and governments. Built with blockchains, smart contracts and AI, IOA offers a vision for global supply chains and logistics, facilitating trade that is free, fair and frictionless.

If you're new to IOA and want an introduction, we recommend starting with the Internet of Agreements paper.
