The House Financial Services Committee has scheduled a Hearing on “Examining the Cryptocurrencies and ICO Markets.” The Hearing will take place on March 14th at 10AM and should be live streamed on the Committee website. Details are thin for the moment but as soon as we receive the names of individuals testifying on the topic we will be certain to publish it.
Initial Coin Offerings and cryptocurrencies in general have received enormous attention in the past 12 months as the wider public has started to
speculate invest in all forms of digital currencies. While more transactional focused virtual coins are quickly becoming legitimized, regulatory questions linger on tokens that are securities or perhaps utility tokens.

Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 10:00 AM – The Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee will hold a hearing entitled “Evaluating CFIUS: Administration Perspectives.”
