The annual Digital assets report, published by OMFIF’s Digital Monetary Institute, examines the economic opportunities digital assets present, looking at different kinds of digital assets and the possibilities they offer for businesses and individuals to deliver value and generate revenue.
The first Digital assets report examined the developing legal framework for digital assets. As digital assets grow in importance, the consequences of a repeat of the crypto winter grow more severe. Accordingly, regulators are doing their utmost to develop the regulatory architecture required to make the digital assets class into a healthy, safe marketplace. Achieving financial stability, investor protection and preventing financial crime without degrading the efficiencies and privacy features that digital assets can offer is an immense challenge for regulators.
The digital assets ecosystem is going through a period of remarkable dynamism, moving from risky but exciting technology to production-grade, regulated business. Progress – both technical and regulatory – is extraordinarily rapid. This report will identify and analyse the assets, technology and service providers that are already shaping the future of digital finance. The winds of the crypto winter have blown away much of the speculative froth in the digital assets space and left us with a far clearer view of where real value and solid, reliable infrastructure is to be found.
To launch second edition of the Digital assets report, the DMI is hosting a virtual event on 28 September. This launch will present key findings of the report, offering insights into regulation and infrastructure for an evolving economy.
Digital assets 2022 launch
For the launch of OMFIF’s Digital assets 2022 report, the panel examined the new opportunities and risks that the evolving asset class presents, exploring the new infrastructure springing up to provide the necessary services in the ecosystem as well as the laws required to protect investors and ensure financial stability.
The digital assets regulatory policy tracker provides a breakdown of the most important pieces of digital assets regulation in 23 key jurisdictions around the world. It allows users to see if a jurisdiction has enacted bespoke regulation for cryptoassets or if they are using pre-existing securities regulation. The tracker also lets users see where various jurisdictions stand on issues like cryptocurrency mining, exchanges, derivatives trading and more.
As regulators catch up to the nuances of the new asset class, financial institutions’ experiments with digital asset technology are beginning to yield results – promising a newer and more efficient transaction medium for financial markets.
Our team of researchers at OMFIF have identified four pivotal pillars that require careful consideration over the coming months: the digitalisation of traditional finance; digital assets for sustainability; thriving in winter and spring cleaning the crypto market.
OMFIF’s readership spans across policy-makers, supranational institutions, 129 central banks and 10,000+ subscribers across the private and public sector.
