The congressional hearing on cryptocurrencies is underway at 10:00 a.m. EST. The United States Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs will conduct a session entitled “Examining Regulatory Frameworks for Digital Currencies and Blockchain.”
Three expert witnesses will join the panel: Jeremy Allaire, co-founder and chief executive office of Circle, on behalf of The Blockchain Association; Rebecca M. Nelson, specialist in international trade and finance, congressional research service; and Mehrsa Baradaran, professor of law, University of California, Irvine School of Law.
They discuss crypto regulations, the unbanked, blockchain entrepreneurs, crypto-friendly jurisdictions that are attracting top talent, countries that are cracking down on crypto and territories that are losing blockchain developers due to regulatory uncertainty.
