3 Reasons Why Tokoverse is Your Crypto Safe Harbour in These Topsy-Turvy Times

Geopolitical risks are an ever present factor in the commercial sphere so much so that their materialization are generally provided for in contractual documents through force majeure clauses which allows parties to a contract to be released from their contractual obligations in the event the materialization of these risks results prevents the parties from fulfilling their obligations. In addition to upsetting the performance of contractual obligations, the materialization of geopolitical risks could also trigger a chain of reaction which results in spillover and knock-on effects that ripple through other areas linked to the commercial sphere such as that of banking and finance.

Precisely because the effects of the materialization of geopolitical risks could be catastrophic for the operations of banks and other financial institutions, the financial services sector is arguably the most heavily regulated with the imposition of stringent conditions such as those of capital and reserve requirements. Nonetheless, there is a particular sub-sector in the financial services sector which is prone to the materialization of geopolitical risks but yet is outside the scope of financial regulations i.e. the shadow banking system under which Non-Bank Financial Companies (NBFCs) provide a distinctive suite of financial services, albeit subject to certain restrictions. With the coming to the fore of blockchain, the crypto domain particularly under the banner of decentralized finance (DeFi) is turning out to be the frontrunner in the shadow banking system.

Shining a Regulatory Light on Crypto

The intricate regulatory web governing the financial services sector arises from the fact that the sector plays a critical role in ensuring the macro stability of the general economic system. In this regard, regulations play a key role in shoring up the structural strength of the financial services sector to warrant that it would be able to withstand the systemic shocks arising from the materialization of geopolitical risks. Besides that, financial regulations also restrict the incidents of financial frauds and other illegal as well as unethical financial activities though in recent times with financial crooks becoming more tech-savvy, regulators have had to up their game to counteract the nefarious schemes of these crooks. Seen against this context, the shadow banking system seems to be antithetical to the notion of financial regulation though this is all set to change for the crypto domain with the United States (U.S) leading the way for crypto regulation.

On 9 March 2022, the U.S government issued its “Executive Order on Ensuring Responsible Development of Digital Assets” (“the Order”) which sets out an outline of the world’s first whole-of-government strategy to safeguard the interests of investors and users of digital assets such as cryptocurrency by addressing the financial stability, national security and climate risks arising from the propagation of these assets. In general, the Order sets out six key priorities which are (1) consumer and investor protection (2) financial stability (3) illicit finance (4) U.S. leadership in the global financial system and economic competitiveness (5) financial inclusion and (6) responsible innovation. Through the issuance of the Order, the U.S government had issued a clarion call for the rest of the world to follow in its lead to harness regulations to elevate the levels of trust in the crypto domain so as to enhance its stability which is imperative if cryptocurrency is to enter mainstream use and Tokocrypto had answered this call loud and clear through Tokoverse.
