Koine’s CRO, Francesco Roda, says regulatory uncertainty is “probably the keåy challenge faced by new enterprises built around the tokenisation of value”

Aberdeen Standard Investments announced that it is working with Citigroup to build “tokenised” real estate assets using distributed ledger technology.

In this piece featured in Ignites Europe, Koine’s CRO, Francesco Roda, says regulatory uncertainty is “probably the key challenge faced by new enterprises built around the tokenisation of value”.

Mr Roda adds that counterparty risk associated with the trading and settlement of digital assets is still a “critical issue” for investors as current markets for digital assets lack segregation between distribution, custody and settlement of assets. “Collusion has plagued this nascent market since its inception, with high-profile internal hacks that have seen dozens of high-profile exchanges disappear, often with client money.”
