Background

After almost three decades of introducing new technology to international markets, the viability of blockchain and crypto from a technical perspective became a matter of study. 

This required a  focus on compliance as a differentiator in the blockchain space.  

Over the last two and a half years,  we have led extensive market research on regulations across different jurisdictions. All this in efforts to assess trends worldwide. 

The feedback obtained yielded some regulatory concerns that we addressed in our Compliance Framework.
