Exclusive interview of LUDWIK SOBOLEWSKI, Board Member at #HighCastle Group, ExCEO at Warsaw Stock Exchange and Bucharest Stock Exchange explains the future of financial markets – for The FinTech Times by Kate Shcheglova

“I tend to see the future of tokenization of assets as a concept to build up “tiers” of financial instruments. There are clear differences between a representation of assets by means of tokens and classical derivative financial instruments, but in essence, these two constructs resemble one another. Having said that, there is a viable perspective for the new concept and its implementations by different companies, like #HighCastle, which combine DLT with securities-backed notes in one #HighCastle’s SmartNote solution. It is also a signal for the regulators, that more “air” is needed for the system. Capital markets, as we know them today, are definitely over-regulated”. – said LUDWIK SOBOLEWSKI
