Boston Blockchain Association Presents: Crypto Regulation in the Age of DeFi

May 4, 2021 1:30 pm —
 2:30 pm
Location — Event will be held remotely on Meetup

The cryptocurrency ecosystem has grown dramatically in profile, economic footprint, and social and political importance — as illustrated by the explosion of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) projects over the last year.

But the crypto industry hardly exists in a vacuum: in the U.S. and elsewhere, law enforcement and regulatory agencies have considered how (and whether) to regulate the fast-growing crypto industry. How can governments encourage innovation, financial privacy, and financial inclusion, while still protecting investors and citizens?

Regulation and government enforcement plays a critical role in how the participants in this space – developers, entrepreneurs, investors, and others – can operate.

This panel of experts with current and former government careers in both civil and criminal enforcement (Treasury, FinCEN, and the U.S. Department of Justice) will share their perspectives and insights on crypto regulation in this age of DeFi. Join us!
