[Webinar] From Crypto to Virtual Assets: Journey towards a Regulated Asset Class in Hong Kong

New Seminar


Over the last year, Hong Kong went from almost a regulatory vacuum to now having a functioning licensing framework under the SFO to regulate virtual assets. What's changed? What is the road ahead from here for virtual asset service providers and investors? This webinar will help you gain insights by examining:
- the regulatory framework in Hong Kong as well as other countries or markets
- how the virtual asset industry has operated in the past, and
- how regulatory changes will likely affect business operators, investors and anyone else who deals with virtual assets.


1. Exchanges, ATMs, coins, cryptocurrencies, wallets and other favourite things
2. Risks for investors
3. How does regulation change (or not change) these risks?
4. Future landscape
