ON DEMAND: The Maturing Digital Asset Ecosystem

Credit: 0 Credit Hours
Run Time: 81 Minutes
**This is a previously recorded program, originally recorded on September 24, 2020.
Blockchain-based digital assets (“coins” or “tokens” in common parlance) have come a long way since the SEC’s July 2017 issuance of the 21(a) report of investigation in the DAO matter. Far from the “Wild West” Initial Coin Offering (“ICO”) days of that time period and the perceived safe havens of SAFTs and “utility tokens,” issuers considering digital asset offerings now frequently look first to what’s possible under provisions of - or exemptions from - the securities laws. Beginning with a fireside chat featuring SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce, our panel will explore the current state of digital asset regulation and the market’s common practices, as well as proposals for reforming the regulatory regime in this area.
Sponsored by: FinTech Regulation & Enforcement Committee of the D.C. Bar Corporation, Finance and Securities Law Community
