Blockchain Assets / Cryptocurrency Consulting
Compliance Risk Concepts (“CRC”) is pleased to announce the expansion of our comprehensive compliance support services into the evolving digital currency space.
Call us today to schedule a complimentary CryptoConsult to speak with a qualified member of our team who can help determine your unique risk areas and assess where we can provide necessary support to your digital currency program. Whether you are an adviser looking to expand your investment strategy to include digital assets, or you are looking to participate in ICOs or build out a platform for trading cryptocurrency as a broker-dealer, it is wise to consider partnering with an established compliance team who can help you navigate imminent regulation and provide assistance from initial registration to regulatory examination.
In addition to recent statements made by regulators, leaders in the tech and social media industries- Facebook, Google, and Twitter- have taken a stance on cryptocurrency that demonstrates a growing suspicion of the digital currency market in general, resulting from repeated instances of fraud, theft, and misappropriation of investor funds. Therefore, in order to become established as a legitimate player in this space, it is vital to take a proactive and risk-based approach toward compliance with regulatory guidance and oversight from the SEC and FINRA. This approach will gratify potential clients and regulators alike.
