Dear Dusk Community,

As you all know, it is important that Dusk has an industry voice in the day-to-day discussions that relate to the future of tokenisation and token finance. It is for this reason that we are excited to tell you more about the 2TOKENS initiative and the 2TOKENS Advisory Board & Research Team that Dusk has officially joined.

The 2TOKENS project aims to make the Netherlands the go-to place for tokenisation and token finance.

Founded by Yes!Delft, Blocklab, LIFT-OFF and Innovation Quarter, the 2TOKENS initiative brings together stakeholders, such as regulators, banks, blockchain companies, ministries and policy makers to discuss token finance.

As a recent addition to the advisory board Jelle Pol (Business Lead at Dusk Network), provides input as a tech and sector expert, and engages in an open dialogue with Legal & Regulatory oversight bodies, Ministries and policy makers, and other blockchain companies. For Dusk this means we steer the EU token finance agenda from the Netherlands, and are an industry expert in a dominant financial hub.

The advisory board consists of the Dutch Regulator AFM, Dutch Central Bank (DNB), Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, CMS Tax and Law, Capgemini, Rabobank, NxChange, New Alchemy, Oddyssey and Ocean Protocol.

As part of the research team Jeske Eenink (Comms & Operations at Dusk Network), formulates research questions and provides input as a subject-matter expert.

We are excited to join the 2TOKENS initiative as blockchain industry experts and look forward to guiding the framework towards sector-wide changes that accommodate a more decentralized future.

The 2Tokens project aims to develop a clear path to realising value from Tokenisation. Ultimately this is a guide on how to use Tokenisation, first surfacing up challenges with the current legal & regulatory environment and helping to motivate the changes needed.
