On Tuesday 22 March 2022 the Centre for Ethics and Law at University College London hosted the webinar, Regulating Digital and Crypto-finance: A Conversation Across Borders. The panel bought together a number of experts, including ALRC Special Counsel Dr Andrew Godwin, to discuss the different reform agendas that may be pursued in different jurisdictions relating to crypto-finance and digital finance innovations more broadly. The panel discussed the proposed reforms in Australia arising out of the Senate Select Committee on Australia as a Technology and Financial Centre and the Review of the Australian Payments System; the proposed reforms in the EU under the Markets in Crypto-assets Regulation; and the regulatory approach currently adopted in the UK. The speakers offered insights into how regulation in this area should be designed.
