Hosted by Thomson Reuters

Aspirations for crypto-assets and the ecosystem of associated products and services growing around them have been tested by sector turmoil at a time the regulatory landscape is slowly crystallizing. Plunging asset values and unsustainable business models have signaled the dangers lurking in the sector. Your business partners may be making plans involving crypto-assets. Are you confident you understand the risks and can make them clear to the business?

Despite recent distress in the market, crypto is still in its nascent stages. Many financial institutions have begun to engage with crypto, and most are investigating distributed ledger technology options for market infrastructure. Enthusiasts and central bankers alike believe in crypto's potential to be interlinked with the regulated financial system.

As crypto faces its own serious disruption while regulators closely observe the fallout, what are the opportunities and risks?

Join Thomson Reuters for a one-hour webinar in which we will discuss the current landscape of crypto-assets and their regulation, and what you need to know to lead your business through this rapidly changing area.
