Officers have also received 15 reports within the past two weeks in which victims have been contacted by fraudsters claiming to be police officers. A man in his 20s from the Norwich area was contacted by a fraudster claiming to be a police officer. The caller had cloned the Norfolk Constabulary number, making the victim believe he was speaking to a genuine police officer. During the call the victim was encouraged to transfer large amounts of money from her bank account, after being coerced into believing that she was part of an undercover police operation.

Securities traditionally refer to a very broad range of financial assets which can be traded on a regulated market. Common types of securities include stocks , bonds, options and derivatives. The price information is time delayed to varying extents, but as a rule by 15 minutes or more, according to the regulations of the selected stock exchange and/or licensors and the type of securities. Other intergovernmental organisations like the Financial Action Task Force and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development are looking to broaden common reporting standards on Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing programmes.
This means that the onus will lie with the exchange, rather than the user, which makes for the smooth and familiar experience that cryptocurrency traders are familiar with. It’s important to note that some exchanges may already be trading security tokens. However, it may also be the case that they are not legally allowed to in certain jurisdictions or that the exchange is hosting a security token without knowing it. As such, we have made sure to only list exchanges with explicit legal permission to trade securities in their given jurisdiction. While some blockchains are notoriously slow, others are tailored to financial markets and can process transactions at dazzling speeds. Furthermore, by using smart contracts, security tokens can automate the need for time-consuming tasks that normally require middlemen. Security tokens are regarded as revolutionary because they allow for assets to be traded on a blockchain, with all the advantages that confers.
Our goal over the next six months is to increase this to 100,000 orders per second. There’s a lot of discussion in the FX market about speed and for us it is about message throughput.

In terms of the exchange model I am very happy if everyone at LMAX Exchange is called an exchange evangelist. That means that we believe in the equality and consistency of execution that you get from an exchange trading model.
Breaching the caps was punished with by a 6-months suspension on market participation. In the context of MiFID II regulations this key feature of a cap is known as the “double volume cap” . The DVC aims to limit dark trading in shares, i.e., trading when the price and quantity to be traded is not disclosed to the market before execution. According to the FCA in the UK, under the DVC rules in MiFID II, dark trading in a given share is suspended, with exemptions for large trades, for 6 months if it exceeds 8% of total trading, or on any one trading venue it exceeds 4% of total trading. In addition to the daily trade and transaction reports, a trading venue is now required by exchange regulations to produce periodic reports, either quarterly or yearly. One of the key reasons for these reports is to help the regulator calculate what are known as Dark caps and publish the new list of capped and uncapped stocks. Although the data recorded for the order record keeping is not needed for day to day regulatory reports, the regulator can ask on occasion for a full audit transcript of a certain order or instrument traded in a specified time frame.

The cold caller then said that he would ‘need to arrange for a surveyor to visit’. Problems include volatile prices, minimal consumer protection and risks of hacking and money-laundering, says the Treasury Committee. Notwithstanding the risks, it has been recognised by governments, regulators and financial institutions that the blockchain technology underpinning cryptocurrencies could have wider application in the financial sector. On 22 February 2018, the Treasury Select Committee announced an inquiry into digital currencies and distributed ledger technology . This is said to arise in particular due to concerns over cryptocurrencies increasing “market volatility, money laundering and cybercrime”.
As a venue needs to report to only one regulator, we will briefly explore the some distributed ledger options in section 6.1, like having the regulator holding a node itself. A blockchain architecture and solution is proposed to audit processing under exchange regulation for trading activity of exchanges. An architecture of the solution is described conceptually and an implementation of the proposed solution is made in .NET framework in C# via a RESTful API for chain interaction with the periodic auction venue. The framework proof of concept is tested for different efficiency and latency considerations. This opens the concept to significantly more detailed and extensive developments. “Given the high price volatility, the hacking vulnerability of exchanges and the potential role in money laundering, the Treasury Committee strongly believes that regulation should be introduced.
