Key Challenges Confronting Institutionalization Of Cryptocurrency (for beginners) part1

in LeoFinance2 months ago (edited)


In this article, we will scrutinize the major challenges/issues confronting the crypto ecosystem as organizations look to introduce crypto products and services.

Without any further ado, these are the challenges;

  • Submission with Regulatory obligations: A mishmash of regulations has surfaced and continues to evolve on a daily basis. Maintaining compliance with laws and regulations related to an array of financial crimes is already a vital issue. That being said, regulations are now focusing on crypto businesses.

  • KYC and Cryptoassets provenance: Crypto owners are identified not by names or account numbers unlike our traditional banks do. Crypto owners are identified by Cryptographic addresses that can be created at any time, anywhere, and by anyone. This alone opens up a unique challenge to KYC (know your customer) programs.

  • Securing Crypto-assets: With the relatively high value of Crypto-assets and their natively digital quality, crypto projects and their members are prime targets for cybercriminals and hackers.

Truth is, virtual currencies can undermine your finances if not managed well. The fact that cryptocurrencies can continually reproduce will have a negative impact on their value. But thanks to new innovations and technology coming out to tackle this particular issue. While crypto is still in its early stages, and with the rate at which new projects are surfacing every day, it's quite safe the future will be interesting with crypto.

Disclaimer: Trading cryptocurrencies carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade cryptocurrency you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with cryptocurrency trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor. ICO's, IEO's, STO's and any other form of the offering will not guarantee a return on your investment.
