FRT welcomes our second special guest, John Collins of FS Vector. John joins us to share his thoughts and expectations on the regulatory landscape and outlook for crypto assets, both in the US and internationally.

The G20 has taken a very considered approach to crypto assets (or “crypto-currencies” or “digital assets”), and some agencies have been careful to not take regulatory actions that may be perceived as legitimizing crypto activities. Nevertheless, officials retain some significant concerns from a range of angles, including investor protection and financial crime. This will be a key focus during the US’s presidency of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

Concurrent to those regulatory responses, we also discuss the roles that commercial banks may look to play, and the prudential treatments that may emerge.
