According to Greg Medcraft, chairman at International Organization of Secirities Commissions council (IOSCO), 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. At least at the start, exchanges will have to guarantee the customer behind [the trade].”
Medcraft pointed out that the blockchain may be potentially “good for investors and issuers”. However, he thinks, regular investors have to be convinced and rest assured their transactions are protected and safe.
