With the increased focus of crypto-assets in payment systems, regulators and policy-makers are looking at how to effectively supervise these new forms of financial transactions. The challenge of fostering innovation and growth while managing risks to ensure financial stability is a key element to this debate, especially with talks of Facebook’s cryptocurrency, Libra, entering the market.
Denis Beau, first deputy governor of the Banque de France, will discuss whether and how regulation should help manage risks and ensure that central banks capitalise on the opportunities that crypto-assets offer. Outlining how regulators can address concerns such as data protection, cybersecurity and the role of the private sector, he will make the case for a coordinated international approach to regulation and supervision.
