Global insights from the Cryptoasset industry

The Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF) produce a Global Cryptoasset Benchmarking Study, supported by Invesco, providing the latest insights into the global cryptoasset industry.

This report reviews the impact of significant changes in the industry since the publication of the 2nd Global Cryptoasset Benchmarking Study in 2018. It provides novel insights into the state of the cryptoasset industry, having gathered data from 280 companies in 59 countries and across four main market segments – exchanges, payments, custody and mining.

“There are several crucial issues – ranging from regulatory compliance, security audit and insurance – that are still rampant and need to be addressed for the industry to fully scale. Our hope is that the insights captured within this study will offer foresight into the evolution of the industry and inform decision-making as the space matures.”
Dr Robert Wardrop, Director and Co-founder of the CCAF

“Our own journey in token economics provided us with experience with third party providers of token creation, digital token exchanges, token custodianship, and navigating the complex legal and regulatory requirements for such an endeavour. Further regulatory clarity and compliance is going to be needed as the industry moves to its next stage of growth.”
Dave Dowsett, Global Head of Technology Strategy, Emerging Technology, and Intentional Innovation at Invesco
