Linklaters | Ben Packer, Richard Hay, Michael Munk, Sophia Le Vesconte, Bonnie Yeung | Jun 27, 2022 The judgment in Tulip Trading Ltd v Bitcoin Association for BSV and Others sheds light on the legal relationship between the software developers behind various bitcoin networks and their participants. Notably, the court found that there was no case to be made that the developers had a duty to take action to undo the effects of an alleged theft. At the same time, the possibility of other legal duties falling on developers in the future was left open. Players in the crypto markets should be cognisant of this position, amid ongoing market turmoil. The decision  Earlier this year, the High Court denied a prominent bitcoin holder, whose private keys to substantial holdings were allegedly taken in a cyber-attack, the right to serve a legal claim on a group of developers for failing to take action to restore the lost value into the claimant’s hands. See:  Code is Law Case: A Hamilton teen ‘hacked’ US$16 million in crypto (while he may not be in the wrong) The case was brought by Tulip Trading Ltd (“Tulip”), which claimed that the defendants were the core developers ...

Herbert Smith Freehills | Hannah Cassidy | Jun 27, 2022 The government acknowledges that the VASP licensing regime will be more rigorous and comprehensive than those in Singapore, the UK and Japan. The Hong Kong government has gazetted amendments to the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing Ordinance (AMLO) to enhance Hong Kong’s anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CFT) regulatory regime. The amendments will be introduced into the Legislative Council (LegCo) for first reading on 6 July 2022.  A LegCo brief sets out an overview of the amendments, which follows the consultation conclusions published by the Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau in May 2021 on the proposed changes (see our 2021 briefing). VASP licensing regime A new licensing regime for virtual asset service providers (VASPs) to be administered by the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC). It is proposed that the AMLO amendments relating to the VASP licensing regime will come into effect on 1 March 2023. Once in force, any person who seeks to carry on a business of providing a virtual asset service (currently limited to operating a virtual asset exchange (VA exchange)) will be required to apply to the SFC for a licence.

Guest Post | Jun 27, 2022 Contrary to popular perception, investing in bear markets can be very profitable. You just need to be a bit careful and choose the correct stocks to invest in. Do you know what a bear market is? When the market index falls by 20 percent or remains between 10 and 19.90 percent, it is called a bear market. It appears just after an economic recession. It is caused by inflation, high interest rates, and more. Is your head spinning at the thought of choosing between public vs. private companies? How do you know which is better during a bear market? Let's compare public and private equity valuations and see where to invest in a bear market. During a Bear Market, What Should Investors Do?

Financial Brand | Bryan Yurcan | Jun 27, 2022 Digital wallets are an increasingly competitive space for card issuers. In fact, without 'top-of-wallet' status cardholder activity can plummet.  Not only is competition growing among card issuers to be “top of wallet” at the point of sale with these digital wallets, but because of the way consumers tend to use them — keeping fewer digital cards in their mobile wallet than they keep plastic cards in their physical wallets — the balance of power in the card business is shifting. See:  Bitcoin wallet Nunchuk scolds Ontario court over order to freeze crypto assets Spurred on by habits created during the pandemic, consumers globally, and in the U.S. particularly, sharply increased their usage of digital wallets in the last 12 months, according to a survey from Marqeta. The payments company surveyed more than 4,000 consumers in early 2022 — 2,000 from the U.S., 1,000 from Australia, and 1,000 from the U.K. — on their usage of digital wallets, which the survey described as “a virtual wallet that stores payments information on a mobile device.” 75% of those who were surveyed globally said they have used a digital wallet within the past year ...
