DAS (Digital Asset Series) 2022 – Session #4 : Regulatory & Compliance Landscape of Digital Asset

Co-hosted by : Asia Pacific Digital Economy Institute, Hong Kong Digital Finance Association

Supporting Organization : City University of Hong Kong – EMBA

In recent years, global regulatory organizations have detailed their desire for robust, and onerous, digital asset regulations, and demonstrated strong commitment to successful enforcement. These assets will be eventually regulated, just as all other financial assets – no more and no less, and sooner rather than later.

The increased global focus on regulations of digital assets effectively began in October 2021 when the 200+ member Financial Action Task Force (“FATF”) released its 109-page Update Guidance for a Risk -Based Approach to Virtual Assets (“VAs”) and Virtual Asset Service Providers (“VASPs”). The 2021 Release made it clear that VAs and VASPs are subject to the full range of obligations under the FATF Recommendations including Anti-Money Laundering (“AML”), Countering the Financing of Terrorism (“CFT”), and Know Your Client (“KYC”) requirements.

It is clear that regulators globally have focused their attention on digital assets, in large part over long-held concerns about protecting consumers from bad actors, perceived abuses in reporting cryptocurrency transactions for tax purposes and conduct of criminal activity and more recently from concerns about potential for circumvention of sanction regimes and ultimately stability of the financial system.

Today, we are very honored to be joined by some of the leading experts in the digital asset space for sharing their insights on regulatory and compliance space.
