Earlier this week, the CFTC held a meeting of the Tech Advisory Committee with several topics of discussion tackling issues like stablecoins and distributed ledger technology being utilized in the financial services sector.
“Fintech holds tremendous promise for our economy. The CFTC is laser-focused on ensuring the United States is a leader in this space, particularly when it comes to digital assets and other 21st century commodities,” said CFTC Chairman Heath P. Tarbert. “I look forward to hosting innovators, regulators, and market participants from across the country and beyond for an insightful discussion.”
Fintech Forward 2019 will also feature a “Meet the Regulators” exhibit throughout the day, where attendees will have the opportunity to engage with regulators about their respective jurisdictions, innovation engagement initiatives, and other fintech topics.
