**Abstract:**
$BL$-algebras, introduced by P. Hajek, form an algebraic counterpart of the basic fuzzy logic. In the paper it is shown that $BL$-algebras are the duals of bounded representable $DRl$-monoids. This duality enables us to describe some structure properties of $BL$-algebras.

**Keywords:** $BL$-algebra, $MV$-algebra, bounded $DRl$-monoid, representable $DRl$-monoid, prime spectrum

**Classification (MSC2000):** 06F05, 03B52, 03G20, 03G25
