Fnality International is delighted that The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has asked our CCO Olaf Ransome to join their newly formed Blockchain Expert Policy Advisory Board (BEPAB).
Members of the OECD BEPAB are responsible for providing input on industry and technology developments and associated policy considerations. The board will contribute to the development of the OECD blockchain policy principles, covering the most pressing aspects of the associated industries, and applications of the technology including stablecoins, CBDCs, digital asset exchange, custody, and more.
Rhomaios Ram, CEO of Fnality, comments “Fnality are working hard laying a small part of the foundations of tomorrow’s financial market infrastructure. Exposure to such a broad forum of experts will enrich our understanding and also allow us to share with that audience what we are building.” He adds “This is a great opportunity to hear from a wider audience what they think the ingredients for successful adoption of DLT will be.”
Olaf Ransome concludes “I am looking forward to being an active participant in the BEPAB. Financial services are a vital part of every economy, including the ‘less glamourous’ end of things; the plumbing. I am lucky to have a very long history in the plumbing side of financial services. If we can learn from the mistakes and constraints of that past, then that will help make tomorrow so much better.”
