HKSFA is pleased to welcome Mr. Paul Li, General Counsel at OAX Foundation and Mr. Ryan Rabaglia, Head of Trading at OSL to present at our continuing education luncheon on the topic “Cryptocurrencies: Opportunities and Challenges”.  

Regulatory Challenges To Digital Asset Trading

In his presentation, Mr. Paul Li will explain the features of digital assets that make them different from any other asset class that’s previously been regulated – the main reason why regulators, lawyers and the general public need to rethink their approach to the industry. He will also share his views on how digital asset regulation may pan out, namely the different potential scenarios and their implications.

The Future Of Cryptocurrency Investment

Mr. Ryan Rabaglia will share with the audience an overview of cryptocurrency investment, how the OTC desk for digital asset trading works, and what opportunities are currently emerging in the industry.
