    I trust that you have now had the opportunity to consider my initial thoughts on the DLT Risks and Security Considerations. I summarised these views in the Blockchain/DLT Working Group Meeting presentation for 12th August 2020. The areas I addressed in that presentation were cryptoasset and DLT regulatory risks, corporate risk, threat actors, logical security services and cryptography-related risks.

    As I stressed at the meeting, these were just my views. Respond to this post with your views on how you perceive the DLT Risks and Security Considerations landscape please. I look forward to speaking to all members of the subgroup in the near future.

    PS - These are interesting reads:

    1. NISTIR 8202 :
    2. Cryptoassets:
