  • Decentralized, Not Deregulated — The Future Of DeFi Is Changing Following Onslaught Of Lawsuits And Criminal Investigations

Over the past few months, a slew of lawsuits and investigations have brought crypto platforms and DAOs under increasingly intensifying scrutiny. For all the innovation that DAOs allow, the organizational structure is also being used by some to evade regulation. Commenting on the Genesis case, Former Chief of the SEC’s Office of Internet Enforcement, John Reed Stark, said, “The perilous crypto-ecosystem is a mammoth, opaque and incestuous clandestine marketplace with no transparency, no meaningful regulatory oversight and no consumer protections.”

DAOs, especially in the DeFi space, will likely need to take steps now to prepare for new and varied compliance requirements. That means readiness, flexibility, and adaptability could be vital so the organization can pivot with as little disruption as possible along the path where new regulations form and take effect. DAO toolkits like Ink Finance offer a real plug-and-play solution for maximum flexibility in adaptation, the much-needed integrity components for KYB/KYC, and greatly enhanced security & accountability features that can better protect against hacking while helping compliance.

  • As Stricter Regulations Loom, Ink Finance Can Build DeFi Protocol’s Infrastructure Of Transparent And Compliant Governance

In the wake of the collapse of the world’s third-largest crypto exchange, FTX, the entire centralized crypto finance regime is facing intense scrutiny.

What is particularly alarming is that such heavy-handed regulatory scrutiny is likely to be extended to the DeFi space, as the official language of “just the beginning” suggests. This has brought renewed debate to the tricky question of how to incorporate stronger regulation into a space built on the concept of decentralization and autonomy. DAOs in the DeFi space might need to be ready for adaptation to new compliance requirements at a moment’s notice. To read the article, please click here…

Product Development

The following functions are updated on INK’s development network:

  • The Quick Launch function is now available for board members to set themselves up for all roles necessary for their investment committee. The functional roles include Fund Administrator, Fund Manager, Fund Risk Manager, Fund Liquidator, and Fund Auditor. With this functionality, board members can promptly and efficiently establish their investment fund with all the essential roles.
  • After the fund admin launches a fund, any qualified user/ DAO member ( who meets the identity requirements) can invest in this fund on-chain. They can also check the funds’ details, adding funds until it reaches the minimum amount to start.
  • The fund administrator can dissolve the fund when a fund fails to raise the minimum amount within the raising period. Investors can collect their money from DAO Activities > Investment > Failed Launch.
  • Fund token issuance: When a fund is tokenized, INK will issue the fund token for this specific fund. Fund tokens are collatable, transferable, and tradable.
  • If the fund allows intermittent distributions, fund managers can send distributions to the investors from time to time. But in this circumstance, this fund cannot be tokenized.
