The SEC is opening discussions about cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology involving American investors.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, announced on Wednesday that the upcoming crypto panel’s title for its December 2 Investor Advisory Meeting will be “Help Ensure Security.” Investor Protection and Market Integrity in the Face of New Technology”. Earlier, on November 15, the Commission announced that the meeting would be open to the public. Workshop participants and moderators will attend remotely.
The crypto council discussion program will focus on the regulatory framework covering digital assets, issues of market structure, and identifying risks in emerging technologies. Additional topics are expected to include blockchain technology, crypto-based exchange-traded funds, and stablecoins.
Half of the panelists had specific roles within the blockchain:
- Ali Emdad, professor and associate dean, Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management at Morgan State University, and founding director of the Blockchain and Financial Technology Research Center
- Tyrone Ross, CEO, Onramp Invest
- Sydney Schaub, chief legal officer, general counsel and corporate secretary, Gemini
- Kristin Smith, executive director, Blockchain Consortium
The rest of the panel includes flamboyant law professors and financial market experts.
The portion of the meeting dedicated to cryptocurrency discussion is scheduled to take place from 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. EST. Referral remarks for the entire meeting begin at 10:00 a.m. EST and will be streamed on the SEC’s website.
Readers can anticipate questions on topics such as the SEC’s recent decision to refuse to approve Jan VanEck’s spot ETF proposal and the nature of the Commission’s involvement with crypto companies, but the exact questions discussed by the panel remain unknown to the public.
