ISDA Responds to Law Commission on Digital Assets

On November 4, ISDA submitted a response to the Law Commission’s consultation on digital assets.

The response notes the importance of achieving greater legal certainty and offers feedback on the Law Commission’s proposal for the law of England and Wales to recognize “data objects” as a third category of personal property.

The response highlights certain boundary issues that should be considered when developing the precise criteria for this new category, including in relation to voluntary carbon credits.

The response also provides feedback on certain other questions relating specifically to the transfer and custody of digital assets.
