Regulated Finance World Embracing Crypto
Jun Hasegawa, Group CEO of Omise Holdings, made known is gratitude in a recent post. Notably, the CEO stressed the importance of the willingness of the “regulated finance world” to embrace “the financial services, open infrastructure and disruptive technology we’re developing.”
Furthermore, he encouraged governments to be forward-thinking. “The speed of blockchain regulation, policy and compliance continue to impact our industry, but we can’t allow that to stifle our growth,” he said. “[W]e’re seeking jurisdictions with stable and transparent regulatory frameworks and forward-thinking governments.”
