Solidus Labs
February 3, 2019
  • As demand increases for trade surveillance tailored for digital assets, Solidus is expanding its customer base both domestically and internationally
  • Tackling trade manipulation in blockchain-based trading is not a one-company job, and Solidus is constantly forming strategic partnerships with firms offering complementary services

Everything you need to know from the past few weeks, including:

  • FINRA joins SEC in making digital assets an inspection priority for 2019
  • U.S. Congress promoting legislation to tackle digital asset manipulation

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.
