NCFA Interview with Austin Hubbell, CEO, Consilium Crypto

 

What excites you most about digital assets and decentralized finance?

There are so many  exciting  aspects of decentralized finance, it’s hard  to keep  track  of them  all given the fast pace of innovation  in this industry. Here are a few that  come to mind:

  • Democratization of access to capital.  There are so many great ideas and amazing builders in the world that can’t efficiently access capital to grow their business. Large-scale tokenization efforts will allow entrepreneurs and business owners to raise capital efficiently from a global investor base, whether they need $500 or $500 Million.
  • Tokenized funds and structured products. The ability to wrap systematic strategies into smart contracts and have fund management/administration tasks automated through blockchain technology.

 

Where do you see this industry going in 5-10 years?

One of the major themes we see  is that  the fractionalization and  tokenization of assets will continue to accelerate, allowing for more  efficient flow of capital  across the globe. Combining fractionalized ownership with blockchain-based digital identity solutions will enable individuals, not just institutions, to participate more  freely in global  capital  markets. In the long term,  it will be important to have  certain  rights and  restrictions, regulatory or otherwise, baked into the smart contracts or “tokens” themselves, allowing individuals  to buy and  sell as they please with very little involvement of third parties and  middlemen.

 

What are the biggest opportunities and challenges with Fintech in Canada and how can industry, government and key stakeholders best lead the way for a sustainable and successful future?

Canada has  a history  of producing world-class companies in the digital asset industry, including some of the top solutions for smart contracts,  interoperability and  tokenized securities. Regardless of where  the entrepreneurs are based or where  the original concepts were conceived, a lot of these companies move  away from Canada due  to regulatory burden or uncertainty. I think one of the most  important issues that  needs to be addressed is this brain drain or “IP flight” that  seems to be accelerating.

Canadian entrepreneurs need some assurances that  they can  experiment with new ideas, launch prototypes and  reasonably test  technology without the fear of serious regulatory consequences. There is too much  time and  money  spent on lawyers, and  not enough on real innovation.
