We're hosting, in partnership with Legitech, a two-part briefing series looking into bitcoin & co, presented by our Tax Partner and Head of Transfer Pricing, Oliver R. Hoor, and ATOZ Services' Partner, Jérémie Schaeffer.
The past few years have seen rapid growth in crypto assets which are digital assets recorded on a distributed ledger. The success of bitcoin and Co. has not escaped the public eye and crypto assets seem to be more than ever on the edge of mass adoption. Following a bull market in 2020 and 2021, and a bear market in 2022, it is expected that better times are ahead in 2023 and 2024.
More recently, financial institutions and asset managers developed new investment products, payment service providers include crypto currencies in their payment platforms and multinational groups are allocating cash to digital assets as a hedge against inflation. Governments and regulators around the world have a close look at crypto with a view to introduce regulation, and in some cases adopt crypto as legal tender.
