New Report by Hogan Lovells, Innovate Finance and EY Outlines Opportunities for Regulators to Clear Path to Blockchain Adoption

This week sees the launch of our report on the opportunities for regulators to embrace the use of blockchain.

Through collaboration with Innovate Finance and EY, plus a number of clients and Innovate Finance members, we have produced an overview of how blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies (DLT) fit into the current regulatory and legal regimes governing capital markets.

We are at a point of convergence where the technological innovation and legal regulatory worlds need to evolve to operate as one if the full potential of DLT is to be realised. Understanding the wider legal context is crucial to mitigate early adopter risk whilst the law races to catch-up, knowing not only how regulation will categorise technology, but how and when dialogue with regulators should form part of the process. Industry collaboration will be key to integrating DLT into the capital markets.

The report aims to provide policy and industry recommendations to support regulation keeping pace with evolving technologies.
