What should the rules be for Cryptoassets? Accounting, Regulatory and Legislative Perspectives

AgendaRecording | Bio Sheet

Over the last two years, cryptoassets have received significant attention from the media, regulators, governments, investors, and banking institutions.  
  • How should we account for them?  
  • Should they be regulated?  If so, how and by whom?  
  • Is legislation needed?  
  • What cross-border governance is needed?  
  • We will explore the major implications of these questions and answers.
