Global crypto markets lost about USD 2 trillion of market value compared to their peak at the end of 2021. During this prolonged sell-off, known as “crypto winter”, many actors of the crypto space went bankrupt (Terra/Luna, Three Arrows Capital, or more recently FTX), contagion between crypto assets spiked, with adverse consequences for investors. Those failures exacerbated the global sell-off and raised important concerns for regulators around the world.

This roundtable aims to address the following questions:

  • Is there a risk of contagion of crypto markets to traditional financial markets?
  • What will be the consequences of crypto failures on investors’ crypto sentiment?
  • How should regulation protect retail investors?
  • Do decentralized finance protocols offer better investor protection than centralized platforms? Would standards of disclosure, controls, governance and new forms of custody help the crypto industry restore trust?
