According to the chairman at IOSCO (International Organization of Secirities Commissions) council, Greg Medcraft, financial institutions implementing the blockchain technology, shall consider reimbursing customers their assets in case of fraud.
Speaking to the Financial Times, Medcraft stated:
“One way to get consumer confidence is that someone has to look after the issue of fraud. Ă€t least at the start, exchanges will have to guarantee the customer behind [the trade].”
