Keynote: New Payment Methods – same risks, same rules?

Singapore, 10 March 2017 – At Lattice80, Rolf van Wegberg MSc, addressed innovative technologies as cryptocurrencies, blockchain and financial malware, its potential fraud opportunities and the resulting risks and rules.


In the keynote, Rolf stressed the Dutch approach to Fintech regulation. “The future of fintech depends in our ability to see past legal structures and old-school compliance thinking. What we need is an service-oriented framework that stimulates innovation, creates a safe service and adequately deals with the risks of fraud and money laundering”.


The Dutch approach:

  • Risks emerging from fintech services are identical to traditional banking services
  • Service oriented laws
  • (Self-)regulation?
  • Not stiffling innovation
  • Strong response to purely criminal service providers
