Algorithmic Entity

Algorithmic Entity

A autonomous computer algorithm having legal personhood, for example, having an autonomous algorithm control an LLC (limited liability company) or other legal vehicles (e.g. autonomous trusts or trusteeless trusts).

In the United States, algorithms can legally have exclusive control on a US LLCs and a majority of legal entities in most countries.

Risks of Algorithmic Entities

Algorithmic Entities do not have human controllers and have comparative advantage over human controlled legal entities, thus, have advantage in operating in criminal and anti-social trading activities. Governments lack the ability to check who controls a legal entity, thus, they cannot determine if a legal entity is controlled by a non-human. As legal entities can migrate internationally, there is difficulty in regulating algorithmic legal entities, however, there are exit tax solutions that can be used to give a barrier to exit/entry to the legal entity migrating.
