The Association For Digital Asset Markets (ADAM) works in partnership with leading financial firms and regulatory experts to devise a code of conduct for digital asset markets.
ADAM exists to foster fair and orderly digital asset markets where participants can transact with confidence.
To protect market participants from fraud and manipulation;
To provide clear standards for efficient trading, custody, and the clearing and settlement of digital assets;
To encourage professionalism and ethical conduct by market participants; and
To increase transparency and provide information to the public and governments about digital asset markets.
Created to promote integrity, fairness, and efficiency in digital asset markets, the ADAM Code of Conduct is intended to inform market participants on best practices and to complement, not replace, existing regulation, part of a long-term effort to define and promote ethical conduct by all digital asset market participants.
ADAM is a broad-based industry group that seeks to include a wide variety of market participants, including trading platforms, custodians, investors, asset managers, traders, liquidity providers, and brokers. Its members are firms that are active in digital asset markets or seek to participate in those markets.
