All in all, growth projections for Alternative Financing and other crowdsourcing instruments are very promising. However, the market is facing one major challenge: controlling fraudulent activities. Crowd-based forms of financing business activities only add value to the market if borrowers and investors can trust one another. Regulation is the key to securing this trust by establishing binding rules and guidelines. Financial regulation, on the other hand, is very complex and slows down the dynamic of an evolving market.
