DLT to Help Regulators

Applications such as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) can help to effectively regulate the derivatives markets, according to Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Chairman J. Christopher Giancarlo. He noted that DLT could be used to automate certain regulatory processes, which he described as “quantitative regulation.”

“We can… envision the day where rulebooks are digitized, compliance is increasingly automated or built into business operations through smart contracts, and regulatory reporting is satisfied through real-time DLT networks,” he said. “The machines here at the CFTC would have the ability to communicate regulatory requirements and consume and analyse the data that comes in through such systems.”
