Challenges & Opportunities
At the 6th of November, 2Tokens organized the first round table in a series of three in The Hague at Societeit de Witte. Stakeholders from all parts of the industry were represented, which resulted in highly energetic discussions under inspirational leadership from 6 experts.
Why we need tokenisation
Although the six tables each looked at tokenisation from a different perspective, the reasons why we need tokenisation were very much aligned:
What Do We Need to Do to Achieve Tokenisation
The importance of tokenisation was quite clear to all the participants. Tokenisation is the future and if The Netherlands would not adopt favourable regulations it could become less competitive and lose out on promising startups who settle somewhere else. The next round in the discussions was to understand what The Netherlands needs to do to achieve tokenisation. What are the requirements for the Dutch ecosystem in order to benefit from tokenisation?
How to Move Forward with Tokenisation
Understanding why we need tokenisation and what we need to do to achieve tokenisation are the first steps. Eventually, we need to have the right infrastructure to move forward with tokenisation. The third session of the day was focused on the How and what we require to become successful with tokenisation in The Netherlands.
Undeniably, technology's evolution pace is light-years ahead of regulatory frameworks. The regulation of the token economy is one of the most conflictive tasks within the blockchain ecosystem.
The challenges are diverse: legal & regulatory environment, talent and expertise development, ambition & funding level. But the opportunity, for NL and for the world, is huge.
The round table will be held in an interactive setting with stakeholders from the different industries and disciplines. There are several different dilemma's the teams will discuss.
Joining us for this round table will be thought leaders, innovation drivers, representatives from law firms from the UK and NL, as well as the Dutch regulator AFM, the Dutch central bank DNB and Dutch Government officials.
