Join us. It’s time to build 🚀
This week’s theme is:
Legalese: The Regulatory Climate for Digital Assets
Effective regulatory design and implementation for digital assets is imperative but lacking. Digital assets and cryptocurrency challenge existing legal and regulatory definitions and frameworks. Regulators at both the federal and state levels have been working to try to protect consumers and investors, safeguard the financial system, and allow for innovation and competition.
This week’s topic is:
Regulatory Advances for Digital Assets
What are the differences between digital assets and traditionally-traded instruments? What are the market enforcement actions taken to date by regulators as these assets become further entrenched in global financial markets? Regulators have identified stablecoins as posing one of the most immediate risks to the broader financial system because they are a key bridge between new and traditional markets.
Our panelists will discuss the regulatory advances in the digital asset arena and how regulation can protect consumers and investors, while safeguarding the financial system, and allowing for innovation and competition.
