Future of Regulation and Enforcement
Policy and regulation often shadows new innovations and new industry. In the case of DLTs, there are capacity building and education requirements within regulatory offices and policy makers to both understand the technologies, what risks and opportunities they present and how to appropriately and carefully develop regulation to accommodate them. Enforcement presents problems when identity, privacy and asymmetry of technology is present. How do regulators exercise their function with these challenges? How to protect ultimately the consumers relying on these too? With a truly global economy for digital assets how to tackle aml/kyc and general identity/transaction traceability and enforce it? This session explores the challenges, myths and recent sandbox environment use cases that are pushing the boundaries of existing regulatory frameworks to accommodate digital assets.
