In a new report to the G20, the Financial Stability Board (FSB) has concluded that “cryptoassets do not pose a material risk to global financial stability at this time”.
While this is a welcome boost for the crypto industry, the FSB does make clear that these assets should be vigilantly monitored by authorities going forward.
As such, the FSB has requested that the Standing Committee on Assessment of Vulnerabilities (SCAV) and the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI) work jointly to develop a framework for monitoring the financial stability risks related to cryptoassets with a focus on identifying potential metrics that can be used to measure these risks.
DeVere Group has founded the DeVere Digital Asset Funds, something it says is “a suite” of digital currency solutions for experienced investors, in association with Dalma Capital Management, a hedge fund manager in the Dubai International Financial Centre. The firm has revealed that its strategy will be largely arbitrage-based, as it has identified "durable inefficiencies" across trading venues in cryptocurrency markets that it can exploit using algorithmic trading.
The launch was announced the day after Bitcoin reached its 10th anniversary.
