Representatives from U.S.-based financial giants and cryptocurrency startups will meet with Washington lawmakers this Tuesday to discuss the regulatory landscape, CNBC reported September 24.
The roundtable dubbed “Legislating Certainty for Cryptocurrencies” will reportedly be hosted by Rep. Warren Davidson (R-Ohio). The attendees will address the issue of policy-making regarding the new asset class in the run-up to the introduction of a bill in the House of Representatives by Davidson this fall.
In a letter to participants, Davidson reportedly pointed out eight questions for the meeting, saying that “your input is critical to helping us preempt a heavy-handed regulatory approach that could stall innovation and kill the U.S. ICO (Initial Coin Offering) market.” Along with those issues, which include the problem of protecting customers from fraud, regulators plan to cover private funding disclosures and token issuance laws.
Among the invitees, representatives from Fidelity, Andreessen Horowitz, Nasdaq, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, cryptocurrency startups Ripple, Coinbase and Circle have reportedly confirmed attendance. The opening remarks will be given by Reps. Ted Budd, (R-NC), Tom Emmer, (R-MN), French Hill, (R-AK), and Darren Soto (R-FA)…
