As part of an untraditional industry, crypto companies may need untraditional strategies to build loyal, talented teams.
The mission of crypto, in general, is to democratize finance on a large scale.
In July 2022, the Law Commission of England and Wales published a set of proposals aimed at protecting purchasers of digital assets like nonfungible tokens and cryptocurrencies. Citing the rapid growth in ownership and trading of NFTs and cryptocurrencies, the commission worked with legal experts, technologists and crypto users to develop a set of recommendations that includes the creation of a new, unique category of personal property for digital assets and clarifications to existing laws around ownership, control and transfer of digital assets. The goal, the commission says, is to “deliver wider recognition and legal protections for digital assets, allowing a more diverse range of people, groups and companies to interact online and benefit from them.”
Traders and consumers alike should have access to a high powered platform where they can securely exchange digital assets without having to turn their funds over. The crypto ecosystem has come a long way, but still lacks a secure exchange solution that puts power back in the hands of the traders and community. Tacen is building an exchange platform that combines privacy and security with an open-sourced and powerful platform.
