Hogan Lovells, in collaboration with Innovate Finance and EY, highlights opportunities for regulators to make blockchain adoption a less challenging prospect

We are delighted to be able to share with you our recently published report on the opportunities regulators have to embrace the use of blockchain. 

Collaborating with Innovate Finance and EY, as well as a number of clients and Innovate Finance members, the report provides an overview of how blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies (DLT) fit into the current regulatory and legal systems governing capital markets.  The report aims to provide policy and industry recommendations to support regulation keeping pace with evolving technologies.

As the potential for DLT continue to be explored, its capacity for transformational scope is beginning to emerge and operational examples are already taking shape. We are now at a point where technological innovation and regulation need to come together to operate as one if the full potential of DLT is to be realised.

Regulation needs to keep pace with evolving technologies or risk hindering innovation.  The report highlights the need for regulators to foster a supportive environment by promoting a culture of partnership with the industry, and enable a flexible approach with principles based guidance rather than set requirements.  Essentially, industry collaboration will be key to integrating DLT into the capital markets.

Take a look at the report and send us your feedback and perspectives, so that we can continue to support the use of blockchain and influence its regulation.
