Crypto currencies have been in existence for roughly 10 years. Blockchain technology has seen developments over the years, but still faces many technical challenges that hinder wider spread adoption, such as the scalability problem. Bitcoin and other payment tokens have been the first real practical use case of blockchain technology, but has faced challenges of their own, one of which is regulatory challenges. The "anonymous" nature of value transfer on the blockchain, and it's relative ease of use across national borders and jurisdictions has always been a strong concern for governments and financial regulators.

In this presentation our speaker will discuss how technology will greatly assist Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs) provide safe and trusted services in the crypto space including blockchain while complying with regulatory requirements.
