The working group "Finance" deals with current legal, technical and financial developments in connection with blockchain technology, DLTs, DAGs and DAOs and their influence on a strongly IoT-based Industry 4.0 and the financial sector.
Among other things, the questions of how the current technical developments are to be classified legally and whether and to what extent there is a need for change will be examined.
A current focus of the work is, among other things, investment DAOs or questions as to how far crypto protocols and crypto assets should be regulated on the financial market or how the fusion of, for example, the old economy with a tokenised Web 3.0 DeFi (Decentralised Finance) economy can succeed. To this end, we regularly contribute to (scientific) statements and submissions for e.g. the German Bundestag, BaFin and other regulatory institutions.
Group lead: Jan-Gero Alexander Hannemann and Zsófia Vig
