Market Architecture: from a technical perspective, both DLT and centralised IT technologies do not prevent to collapse the infrastructure roles, was the regulation right in separating the role or is there a difference in DLT that justify such a collapse now?
Business case: is the technology too expensive for all actors to co-sign to use it? Will it lead to more fragmentation?
Interoperability: what do we learn from the first cross-chain repo swap (between HQLAx and Fnality) with different DLT technologies? How do smart contracts further enable automation, e.g. for corporate actions?
How do the two worlds of DLT native and traditional book-entry securities work together?
What is the difference between securitisation and tokenisation of assets?
Can tokenisation and servicing of tokenised assets by a Settlement System Infrastructure inject liquidity and trust in the new market segments?
“Same activities, same risk, same rules” – is it so true?
Now that we have seen some failures, e.g. FTX, what regulation should apply to DLT Settlement Systems and their operators?
