WFE Research Explores Traditional Exchanges’ Engagement with Crypto Markets

Subscribe to our newsletter

The World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) has released the first part of a research project focusing on the interaction between traditional exchanges and crypto markets. The paper aims to shed light on the benefits and risks of crypto market infrastructures and how they operate. It explores how regulated exchanges are adapting to the emergence of crypto technologies by either establishing regulated crypto-trading platforms or offering crypto-related services.

The study highlights the risks associated with unregulated crypto-trading platforms, such as the potential for illegal financial activities and the implications for market integrity and investor protection. It also examines the impact of decentralised and centralised crypto platforms on aspects like liquidity, price discovery, and regulatory concerns, including anti-money laundering and investor protection.
