The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has just announced that its staff will hold a second fintech forum on May 31, 2019. The event will gather cryptocurrency influencers as well as members of academia.
A fintech hub for crypto and Blockchain
This is already the second time when the agency holds such an event. Panelists will touch upon such issues as ICOs, cryptocurrency trading platforms, and Blockchain innovations.
The fintech forum is organized by FinHub, the agency’s new division for cooperating with cryptocurrency-oriented startups that was launched back in October. Apart from that, the SEC’s fintech hub also focuses on other disruptive technologies, such as Blockchain and AI.
SEC goes on a crypto tour
As reported by U.Today, the SEC also announced its ‘P2P’ crypto tour, the purpose of which is to get in touch with cryptocurrency investors and industry influencers to bring more clarity when it comes to regulations. In such a way, they want to encourage crypto-businesses to realize the positive aspect of regulations.
While the US securities watchdog is cozying up to crypto, two Bitcoin ETFs are currently awaiting the agency’s approval.
