How to make sure regulation helps and not hinders the development of blockchain solutions?
Blockchain and related technologies have the potential to fundamentally transform a wide range of industries and the regulatory framework of such technology should be understood as a ‘living strategy’. It must be constantly reviewed to ensure that it grows with and encourages innovation within the industry.

How to find a balance between encouraging new ideas and fostering innovation and protecting consumer rights and ensuring prevention of bad acts? How to make sure regulation helps and not interferes with the development of blockchain-based solutions?

Some may say that in order to create a regulatory framework quickly and with minimal risk, governments should collaborate with innovators, implement mechanisms such as regulatory sandboxes, and consider international approaches, particularly to work together on use cases.

How to find a balance between encouraging new ideas and fostering innovation and protecting consumer rights and ensuring prevention of bad acts? How to make sure regulation helps and not interferes with the development of blockchain-based solutions?

Some may say that in order to create a regulatory framework quickly and with minimal risk, governments should collaborate with innovators, implement mechanisms such as regulatory sandboxes, and consider international approaches, particularly to work together on use cases. What are the current initiatives, projects, successful pilots?

Can effective communication and consultations between governments, technologists, and the broader community enable all parties to better understand the interests and concerns of blockchain development and the impact of such technology more broadly?

Let’s meet for the panel discussion on blockchain technology regulation and find out what can help build the most appropriate regulatory framework which would support sustainable blockchain innovation.

Join us on 27 May at 3pm CET. The event is free-of-charge, but registration is mandatory. You can access the event through the following Zoom link: us02web.zoom.us/j/88194322515
