Enabling an EU framework for markets in crypto-assets

13 May 2020

The European Commission is calling on all relevant stakeholders in the crypto-asset ecosystem across the EU to join them for an online roundtable discussion. As part of the wider digitalization agenda, the Commission is working to present a proposal on crypto-assets in Q3 2020, to ensure that Europe can make the most of the opportunities they create and address the new risks they may pose.

The webinar and discussion will revolve around the following high-level questions:

  •  What are the main issues that a potential crypto-asset framework should address?
  •  Beyond issuance, trading and safekeeping are there other activities or services offered in relation to crypto-assets that should be covered in a potential crypto-asset framework?
  •  What are the obstacles to the scaling up of crypto-asset firms in the EU?
  •  Do so-called ‘global stablecoins’ – a subset of crypto-assets – require a specific framework?
  •  To the extent you have experience of crypto-assets falling in scope of existing EU financial services legislation (e.g. MiFID II), have you encountered any specific regulatory obstacles?

This event will be chaired by Florian Denis and Jon Isaksen, Policy Officers in DG FISMA’s Digital Finance Unit.

Fintech UX For B2B

15th May 2020

As we have seen in the recent years there are a lot of changes and innovations on the Fintech field. New superstars are coming like Revolut, Bunq or Monzo but the B2B Fintech field have been silent so far. There were always Fintechs who were focusing on SMEs and Corporates but their UX was never revolutionary, rather average. Not even mentioning the poor UX of the Corporate departments of banks. But the focus is shifting as companies are getting more digital they demand better services. And UX is a key component of better customer experience.

On the 15th of May, the teams of TreasurUp by Rabobank and Ergomania (new member of Holland Fintech) will share their knowledge about building design systems and how this Fintech revolution is happening on the B2B field.

‘Disrupt business banking with UX’, Dr Rung András – Founder, CEO at Ergománia

‘Why you need a design system – a Dutch Fintech case study’, Eward Bartlema – Growth UX, Maria Amidi Nouri – Senior UX Architect
