Which infrastructure is needed for digital assets and crypto currencies in order to drive the future of finance?

Most traditional banks and leading financial institutions have investigated blockchain technology and are currently making progress in tokenizing conventional financial asset classes. But highly secure technology and sophisticated processes will be needed to secure keys and automate both the handling of digital assets as well as audit and other governance processes. So it is undoubtedly right to say that regulatory compliant crypto custody and trading solutions, as well as the regulatory classification of tokens, are the missing pieces of the puzzle to kick-start this upcoming paradigm shift towards the token economy. Moreover, financial institutions now have to act and institutionalize crypto assets.

The blockchain conference hosted by Disrupt Network aims to broaden the discussion around digital assets, crypto assets and regulation around those and accelerate the adoption of digital assets by institutional clients. The event highlights how leading projects and institutions are using or plan to use blockchain infrastructure to bring about structural changes within the financial ecosystem. And – most importantly – how upcoming regulation is making it clear what the next how steps will look. Discussions like these could lead to a truly open global financial system as envisioned by blockchain and lead to greater innovation, and efficiency within the global financial system.

Deloitte is supporting the event, and will be represented on the day by Dr. Dirk Siegel and Jens Paulsen, the heads of the Deloitte Blockchain Institute in Germany. In their presentation, they will give insights on the changing regulatory landscape and how the financial industry in German-speaking countries is adopting blockchain.
