German Bank Association: New Regulation for DLT-Based Securities May Be Necessary

The Association of German Private Banks (Bankenverband) foresees that a need for new regulation may arise from the emergence of distributed ledger technology (DLT)-based securities. The association expressed its concerns in a post on its official website on March 11, Cointelegraph auf Deutsche reported.

Per the post, if securities are issued using new technologies, then there is a need for new safekeeping and settlements processes. According to Bankenverband, corporate actions and securities trading may also be subject to change because of DLT-based securities.

The statement further explains that because of the changes that new technologies will create in business processes, “adaptations of civil and regulatory requirements at national and European level may be necessary.”

Recently, the German Federal Ministry of Finance also published a key issues paper on the treatment and regulation of blockchain-based securities.

As Cointelegraph recently reported, German regulators and lawmakers have thus far failed to create a workable legal framework that would provide legal certainty for applications of blockchain technology.

The news came shortly after German parliamentary representatives have argued that the country’s blockchain strategy should include an appropriate legal framework for cryptocurrency trading and token issuance, which would in turn encourage the sector’s domestic development.
