Letter: Regulators may not clock blockchain security risks


Share post:

Regarding Gillian Tett’s article “Regulators have cryptos in their sights” (Opinion, February 18), I work in cyber security and underpinning cryptocurrency is the blockchain technology which replaces hierarchical checking and signing off of transactions with a decentralised, mutually agreed, process. No single person or organisation has overseer control.

Blockchains are immutable — once an individual user or organisation enters data or completes a process, that’s it, done. Blockchains have inbuilt security, but there is a potential risk of a breach where individuals may have compromised security on their own devices while completing transactions.

Unlike a traditional hierarchical corporate financial process, just one lapse in a blockchain member’s security may result in substantial losses for all.

I’m not sure that both customers and regulators are fully cognisant of the full risk?
