Cryptocurrencies Dispelling the Myths

The world of cryptocurrencies can be a disorienting place. Now, we are seeing one of the periodic booms in the value of Bitcoin and its sister currencies, with businesses and some governments exploring the possibility of launching their own versions, while others warn of the financial crime risks that crypto brings.

But who to trust, and where to strike the balance? In this session, crypto compliance expert Malcolm Wright will challenge the conventional wisdom about cryptocurrencies and the sector’s attitude toward regulation and explore regulator and compliance best practices that can help build a crypto compliance ‘ecosystem.’

Malcolm will also investigate the development and future of central bank digital currencies and their relationship to crypto, as well as the role crypto tools can play in supporting financial institutions.
