    Can Market infrastructure make a difference?

    Bitcoin, Ethereum, blockchain, initial coin offerings, tokenised assets… the crypto world is in a constant state of flux. As each day goes by the wild, hair-raising ride of cryptocurrency and other digital assets becomes decidedly more exciting. In January this year the total market capitalisation of cryptocurrencies had soared to more than $800bn, up from $18bn a year earlier. In August it had fallen to $200bn. Yet investors, traders, banks and others continue to believe in the possibilities presented by cryptocurrencies, by digital assets in general and by the blockchain technology that underpins them. Ever more sophisticated infrastructure is being created to facilitate issuance, trading and post-trade services in these new digital markets. And governments and regulators are assessing the risks to the financial system and introducing safeguards.

    What does all of this mean for the financial sector – for investors, banks, other financial institutions, market infrastructure providers, regulators and governments? Will it be a rewarding ride? Can market infrastructure make a difference? Is there a way make the crypto space a viable world to raise capital? And can that world be made a safer place?
