THESIS TOPIC

Legal Aspects of Asset Tokenisation: A Case Study of SME Finance in Developing Markets, co-supervised by Professors David C. DONALD and James ZENG.

RESEARCH INTERESTS AND AIMS

I am interested in

  • FinTech law and policy.
  • Banking and financial regulation.
  • Intellectual property law.

With my thesis, I hope to analyse viable solutions to support the utilization of asset tokenisation through proposed legal instruments. To be more specific, apart from regulations concerning the current blockchain-based issuing of cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings (ICOs), this research intends to propose a regulatory basis for the governance of the token economy at full scale.
