About this talk

Discussion around digital assets is taking the industry by storm and growing at an unprecedented pace. But as the world embraces the next iterations of technology in banking and capital markets, questions arise. Do we have clear definitions and understandings of these digital assets? How do differing definitions by regulators lead to challenges and conflicts? Have we accounted for the different risks that this technology brings about? Our webinar will find out. This discussion will cover the following topics: Understanding digital assets - The world of digital assets lacks clear definition, and too often people’s minds jump to Bitcoin or the like. So what are we talking about when we say “digital assets”? - What are asset backed tokens and how can we use them? How should we understand the benefits of tokenization? - How does differing risk appetite globally change the understanding of and demand for digital assets? Tackling regulations - Regulators are often stymied by new products that don’t fit nicely into traditional buckets. How are regulators looking at digital assets? How does this differ by country? - How does the regulators’ understanding of digital assets challenge new participants? - Where are the gaps in regulations? Challenges and looking forward - There are still limitations in the underlying technology that supports digital assets that pose challenges. How do we remedy this? - Looking at the example of distributed ledger technology, how do we understand the potential while balancing the flaws and challenges of the technology? - What risks do digital assets pose? How do the risks balance with the benefits of digitalization? - What potentials of the use of digital assets are not yet being realized?
