‘Xalgo-rule’ Authoring Video-Tutorial
Xalgorithms contributor Ryan Fleck has produced an excellent short video tutorial that illustrates the line-by-line authoring and testing of a ‘Xalgo-rule’ message on the ‘alpha’ level Internet of Rules. His sample rule is a Value Added Tax base rate, since it’s something practically everyone has some familiarity with. This rule is only for the base VAT rate. Any adjustments (zero-rated item or some exemption or credit) is an additional discrete rule. Great work Ryan!

Transforming the Sudanese Economy: Benefits of Blockchain Technologies and an “Internet of Rules” for Economy and Trade
Juan Felipe Rodrigo López. 2018. Transforming the Sudanese Economy: Leveraging trade facilitation, e-commerce and geographical indication protections through Distributed Ledger technology. Pre-publication research draft, towards a Masters in International Economic Law and Policy, University of Barcelona. October 2018. This paper explores the potential for blockchain technology to address Sudan’s long-standing economic challenge of export concentration given its current process of accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO). In tackling this situation, it is proposed that the protection and promotion of geographical indication (GI) products, the development of e-commerce and implementing the Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) provisions should be priorities in support of Sudan’s economic development. The paper concludes by suggesting the benefits that implementing blockchain technologies and an “Internet of Rules” could bring to the Sudanese economy and trade policy.
