Legislation and Regulation

  • South Africa’s central bank proposed a licensing regime for digital asset exchanges and wallet providers.

Our take: For the digital asset space globally, stakes of non-compliance are constantly increasing with a first jail penalty. The combination of increasing legislation and regulation is bound to maintain this trend and we can expect significantly more regulated and prudent blockchain-based finance by the end of 2019, ushering accelerated mainstream and institutional adoption.

Our take: Finance veterans like Fidelity are becoming more vocal regarding the transformation blockchain-based assets are introducing to capital markets, while digital asset firms like tZERO and Gemini are utilizing regulation-friendly policies and traditional investment vehicles like ETFs to attract institutional investors. This amounts to a pincer movement that combined, brings digital assets closer than ever to both Wall Street and Main Street.
