― William Penn

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Steem blockchain, peace be with you.

Introducing SteemCourt.


Bringing law and order to the blockchain.

On this day, 2 June 2018, the legendary Knight of the blockchain, decrees the formation of SteemCourt, the first ever court on the blockchain; and, the beginning of a new decentralised judicial system to serve the Steem community.

Commissioned into existence by the SteemChurch, SteemCourt seeks to provide SteemChurch parishioners with an equitable and just, dispute arbitration and resolution service, with respect to all matters of complaint, relating to activities on the Steem blockchain.

Long Title: The Court of Cryptography, Blockchain & Steem

Short Title: SteemCourt

Account: @steemcourt

Tag: #steemcourt

Legally enforceable agreements on the blockchain.


For many moons this Knight has been contemplating the use of the Steem blockchain as an ecosystem for trade and commerce. What was lacking however was a mechanism for contractual dispute resolution; yet demand for such a service was relatively unknown.

Just recently however, Brother @abiye, manager of the SteemChurch FARMS initiative, sought to enter into a legally binding arrangement with SteemChurch parishioner @druids; with respect to the ongoing poultry farm operations; and the rest they say 'is history'.

See the original contract post at this link.

SteemCourt is available to decide on all disputes relating to SteemChurch parishioners.

Those who wish to conduct trade via contractual arrangements are asked to lodge their contracts with the SteemCourt, at the date of execution. Seven days after the confirmations of all parties and the witnesses of the Court have been noted - the contract will be considered legally valid.

Chief Justice


There have been few who have added so much to the prosperity of SteemChurch and still remain unanoited.

A simple farmer's son, this man is now wise in the ways of academia and a leader within his community. Despite the success and respect he has achieved however, he has never forgotten his 'common-man' roots.

Humble yet outspoken; merciful yet forceful; tough yet fair. He is impartial and objective and he will blindly ensure that the scales of justice remain balanced. He is...


Chief Justice of the SteemCourt.

Our new Chief Justice will be granted the keys to @steemcourt and will commence posting on legal matters effecting the SteemChurch effective immediate.

Congratulations Chief Justice.

Matters that the SteemCourt will not adjudicate on.

We have determined that the SteemCourt will not adjudicate on the following matters:

1 - Any non-blockchain criminal or civil matter.

2 - Any matter involving a fiat currency.

(If currencies are able to be printed, they are unreliable, unstable and easily manipulated. SteemCourt will primarily arbitrate on matters concerning Steem, SBD and the new SteemChurch SMT. Other blockchain based cryptocurrencies might be considered. All contracts lodged with the SteemCourt should be drafted in accordance with this determination.)

Wow! This is awesome @sirknight. As an Esquire to be with passions for law and justice, i've thought of a platform like this to share views with like minds. Few days ago i was even telling a friend law is not effective on steemit so i cant't really blog about it. But the creation of steemcourt has kindled my interest of activity on steemit. thank you @sirknight for this opportunity. Congrats to your Lordship @hboi, you've been saddled with a great mandate to sit blind but reason with the ears and the scale in the execution of justice, i wish you the help from above. Long live steemcourt😁!

I'm sincerely honoured for this privilege given to me by our great leader @sirknight, indeed this great knight work day and night just to ensure that @steemchurch grows bigger and with this act, I pledge my sincere fairness and just to the steemcourt. Thank you sir @sirknight and to everyone for this great privilege.


Congrats @hboi! I am sure you are up to the task! May God grant you all wisdom and prudence in this large responsibility!


Congratulations brother @hboi, God honors those who honor him. God give you the wisdom you need to direct your new task, many blessings brother.

A Steemcourt? You are full of sweet surprises SK.
@hboi, the new chief of justice will manage the court proficiently.

Congratulations @hboi

A steemcourt? This is amazing, if you ask me, I'd say, steemchurch is gradually becoming autonomous republic in the body of steemit, @with farms and different arms of steemchurch in west Africa and Venezuela, I guess there will always be a body of rules.
Where there is no law then there may not be order, I guess the existence of this court will be to bring amnesty, order, resolve issues relating to agreements of contracts on the church it's a great initiative.

Congratulations @hboi

Another amazing initiative that will help and bring the best out steemchurch and steemit generally, steemchurch is just getting better and better I must say this, you are a blessing to us all and a God chosen leader.

You inspired by God to put all this together and you are our inspiration.

Congratulations to @hboi


This is another surprise that caught me big time. I am glad for this actually but sincerely speaking, the parishioners which i am one of have been dealing which one another in love and peace. But like you said, whatever what doing at all , what doing well. I am a graphics artuste and will get to work on the wheel of the steemcourt logo designs and artwork. Halleluyah! At sir druids,I keep following ur trail ooo.

A steemcourt? This is astounding, in the event that you ask me, I'd say, steemchurch is continuously getting to be self-ruling republic in the assemblage of steemit, @with ranches and distinctive arms of steemchurch in west Africa and Venezuela, I figure there will dependably be an assortment of principles.

Where there is no law at that point there may not be arrange, I figure the presence of this court will be to bring acquittal, arrange, resolve issues identifying with understandings of agreements on the congregation it's an awesome activity.

Congrats @hboi

God favor you more sir....

When I say the post of @farms entering a legally binding arrangement with SteemChurch parishioner @druids, the first thing that came to my mind was that steemchurch will need a legal person to handle legal matters and maybe a court.

We have very insightful leaders. I certainly did not see this coming.

Where can we get more information (like the nitty-gritty of it all)? Or will it be forthecoming? What set of laws will it be based on? What jurisdiction will it be based on? I want to see these things spelled out somewhere if possible. I think it will only help what you're trying to do.

Another big initiative by the great man himself @sirknight.

This is super awesome. I love it @sirknight. You're a legal genius for this innovative new court of the blockchain

Great innovation.

Very good excellent congratulations to the new president of the Supreme Court God bless you. @hboi

Another great work by the Legendary himself @sirknight. What more can i say, God will continue to bless and endow you with strength to carry on the good work.... God bless you

Great initiative for order amd discipline so we can have a good grasp of trust and peace.
Keep steeming!

This is a good initiative our noble @sirknight. The fact that we now have a court and a judge that will preside over issues of the steemchurch and even regarding the blockchain as a whole is worthy of an applaud. I think i can see the posting criteria for steemchurch coming up!

Meanwhile Sir, i know very well that a one man pannel is not your plan. In that, handling of issues is not something only one person should preside on. I hope with time the chief judge will have an assistant and probably lawyers!

Cheers sir!

Another astounding activity that will help and bring the best out steemchurch and steemit by and large, steemchurch is simply showing signs of improvement and better I should state this, you are a gift to every one of us and a God picked pioneer.

You motivated by God to assemble this and you are our motivation.

I didn’t understand a word.

@sirknight I'm new here from Ghana. nice meeting you guys. i must say I'm very impressed with how you guys want to bring the "wisdom' to the limelight
