Digital Asset Research Webinar: Trends in the Privacy Asset Sector
Thursday, September 26, 2019, 10:00-11:00 A.M.

Privacy has been a key topic in this industry from its very beginning and there is an argument to be made that privacy technologies are a necessity in order for digital assets to foster meaningful adoption. After all, without the guarantee of private transactions, businesses can lose negotiating power, users can be surveilled, and the benefits of digital assets are ultimately undermined.

  • In this webinar we will discuss:
  • The difference between anonymity and pseudonymity in digital asset networks.
  • How we structure and track sectors, such as the Privacy Asset sector, via our indexes.
  • Modern approaches to privacy technologies and key developments in leading assets, such as Zcash and Monero.
  • Regulatory regimes and their approach to privacy technologies.
  • The risks faced by the sector.
