Jed, the inventor of KYC3 (Know Your Customer) and one of the founding members of the ICO Regulatory Council, discussed his own experiences within the regulation and compliance aspects of blockchain. Jed provided his expert opinions on why the blockchain space is now starting to become a much more regulated, and as a result, secure space:
