“In this digital day and age, modern technology — especially shared cryptographic ledgers — have the interesting dual property of being potentially transformative and disruptive while at the same time offering opportunities for improved oversight and control.”
As a former risk and compliance officer at the Linux Foundation’s regulatory affairs committee, Llanos recognizes the risks that distributed permissionless systems pose to the global economic system, “Indeed, as easy as visualizing the enormous positive impact that shared cryptographic ledger technologies could have on the global economy is to notice the big challenges facing and risks posed by them.” said Llanos.
Llanos is schedule to deliver a speech at the Compliance & Law Enforcement in the Age of the Blockchain conference, which will be held on the 15th of March in San Francisco.
