Bermuda Shorts – Tech Talks S01 E12
If you are a digital asset company, tech investor or nascent entrepreneur, consider Bermuda for your digital assets licence to get your tech business or platform off the ground.
Bermuda is fast becoming the hub for well-regulated digital asset companies, thanks to its forward-leaning government and the introduction of Bermuda’s Digital Assets Business Act (DABA), effective regulation and a business ecosystem comprised of digital asset experts.
In our latest episode, Partner Jerome Wilson and Associate Carl Meyer provide a quick high-level update on recent changes to the 2018 Code of Practice and the impact on existing and new applicants in the market. They discuss the increased emphasis on consumer protection and how registrants will need to be more end-user focused. Jerome and Carl also share that some insights on existing policies, including for cyber risk management, will need updating – while other policies will need to be introduced.
Be sure to also listen to Episode 2 where they discuss all things DABA, including the different types of licences available, how Bermuda’s regulator guides the application process (including testing new products before hitting the market) and why the Bermuda licence model works in today’s tech world.
