Blockchain Workshop

Workshop, Technology, Business Model

"Blockchain" is one of the current buzzwords in business-related technology of industry 4.0. However, are you really ready to discuss opportunities and use-cases for your business in detail? And do you understand all complex legal, tax and compliance implications of the digital transformation of business processes?

MME is the top advisory firm in Switzerland for Blockchain and Digital Economy. Our clients range from established international institutions to some of the world's most innovative startups with the potential to become market disrupters.

This assures that our legal expertise is combined with a thorough technical understanding of the technology underlying our client's business models.

Please let us share our experience with you! Based on your needs, we will set-up a tailor-made offer together with our technology partners, ranging from a one hour meeting to a multi-day workshop.

Choose from the following modules and topics:

  • Technology: What is the blockchain? How does it work?
  • Business Model: What are the use-cases of blockchain technology? How can it support the traditional economy?
  • Legal: What are the challenges of the blockchain technology from a legal point of view? What are smart contracts? What about data protection?
  • Tax: What are the tax consequences of blockchain transactions?
  • Compliance: What are the regulatory aspects of such transactions (e.g. anti-money laundering, banking, KYC, etc.)

The target audience are executives, leaders and decision makers who want to discover the blockchain business capabilities.

The workshop can be held at your facilities or at the MME offices. Please contact Peter Henschel at +41 41 726 93 32 or by e-mail in order to share your requirements and expectations with us.

Robo Advisor

In the investment advisory and asset management business, personal advice from the financial services provider has so far been the main focus. In the course of the omnipresent digitalization, this area is also experiencing the beginning of a new age. Banks, securities dealers, asset managers, investment advisors and also software developers, often start-ups, are increasingly offering their customers services controlled by artificial intelligence. The so-called "Robo-Advisor", which uses automated and algorithm-based methods to determine investment recommendations and, if necessary, also makes and executes investment decisions for the client, is opening up exciting new business models with not insignificant scaling potential. Especially in the field of virtual assets, such applications are currently emerging. However, the use of such software in a highly regulated area such as the financial market brings with it many questions, some of which are still unresolved from a regulatory perspective. Depending on the focus of the offering and the business model, providers of such services require a license from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority ("FINMA") or affiliation with a supervisory organization ("AO") or a self-regulatory organization ("SRO"). This article outlines the main features of the relevant financial market regulation and the questions that are currently open.

Parliament paves way for Blockchain

Switzerland should be able to develop further as a location for blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT). After the National Council, the Council of States has also approved changes to the law intended to improve the framework conditions for this industry.
