The CMTA was created with the idea that DLT - and more particularly blockchain technology – has the potential to simplify the financing of companies and democratize their access to financial markets, which is for the time being, essentially reserved for large companies.
Currently, the lack of legal certainty and clear standards prevent companies, investors and financial intermediaries from fully exploiting the potential of DLT.
The CMTA was established to promote the transparency and reliability needed to use DLT for financing purposes. One of the main objectives of the association is to promote the issuance and trading of traditional capital market instruments such as equity or debt securities in the form of digital tokens. The CMTA also seeks to adopt standards and systematize good practices at the regulatory, accounting and technical levels, in order to facilitate the treatment of digital assets by financial intermediaries.
The CMTA is an association organized under Swiss law having its registered office in Geneva and registered in the Commercial registry of the canton of Geneva under registration number CHE-408.722.286.
