New Technology and Old Rules: Constructing a Crypto Regulatory Framework – Virtual

November 22, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Cryptocurrency regulation sits at the intersection of multiple regulatory regimes: financial markets regulators and banking regulators, among many others, have asserted authority over certain aspects of crypto regulation, which has resulted in an overlapping and incomplete regulatory framework that has drawn criticism from both proponents and skeptics of crypto innovation. So, how is cryptocurrency regulated? How should it be regulated? Who should regulate it? Cato’s Center for Monetary and Financial Alternatives is looking at these questions with a series that examines the roles of different regulators and considers what type of regulatory framework should be adopted to balance the risks and innovative potential of cryptocurrencies.

This first panel addresses the role of the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in regulating cryptocurrency, focusing on the current state of regulation at the CFTC and discussing the benefits and limitations of the CFTC’s regulation in this space. Join Chris Brummer (Georgetown Law), Katherine Cooper (Murphy & McGonigle), and Melissa Netram (FS Vector) in a panel moderated by Sarah Wynn from CQ Roll Call to discuss the CFTC’s role in crypto regulation.
