By DTCC Connection Staff | April 2, 2019

DTCC has published a white paper titled Guiding Principles for the Post-Trade Processing of Tokenized Securities, outlining function-based guiding principles for regulators and market participants for the post-trade processing of tokenized securities. The market for trading crypto assets that are security tokens where the post-trade processing uses distributed ledger technology (DLT), has created a need for safety, security and reliability around these transactions to protect market stability.

DTCC highlights that DLT introduces characteristics that are distinct from the market structure for traditional securities, therefore creating unique requirements in the design and application of appropriate regulations and post-trade processing structures.
