On 30 August 2022, Professor Iris H-Y Chiu (Professor of Company Law and Financial Regulation at UCL Laws) was invited to speak at the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

Professor Chiu shared her research on regulatory policy for cryptocurrency, crypto-assets and Decentralised Finance with a range of legal and policy colleagues at MAS.

The research is based on insights from her new book, Regulating the Crypto Economy (Hart Publishing). The publication explores the building of a crypto economy as an alternative economic space, and how the crypto economy should be governed. The crypto economy is examined in its productive and financialised aspects, in order to distil the need for governance in this economic space.
