Topics

FATF recommendations

The Financial Action Task Force is imposing existing standards for wire transfers, commonly referred to as the “travel rule”, on blockchain transactions. Many in the industry argue that monitoring transactions on blockchains in this way is impossible or could result in untended outcomes. But this does not mean that blockchain companies don’t care about money laundering and terrorism financing.

The FATF officials, AML experts, regulators and industry leaders from around the world will discuss ways to keep digital asset from being exploited by bad actors.

Market Integrity

Wash trading, price manipulation, insider trading using material-non public information, embezzlement and, hacks are common concerns raised about market integrity. Leaders in the industry are well aware of these concerns and are working respectively or collaboratively to heighten compliance standards. New players such as custodians and, insurance companies joining the industry are also driving force towards market integrity.

Compliance officers from leading crypto exchanges, data scientists, cyber security experts, market analysts and, professionals from traditional finance will share their assessment on current market situation, and discuss variety of measures that are needed to enhance market integrity.

Self regulatory initiatives

Many companies in different countries are forming alliances or associations to establish standards or seeking approval from their governments to establish self regulatory organizations  SROs have been working effectively in financial sector for a long time, but in some countries the SRO model is something.new.

Industry associations from different countries will share their achievements, challenges, strategies and discuss how collaboration can positively impact this fragmented, borderless market.

Asset tokenization/Security tokens
