The Securities and Exchange Commission’s Investor Advisory Committee called a crypto panel for the next Meeting under the title of “Helping to Ensure Investor Protection and Market Integrity in the Face of New Technologies.” The meeting will be held on Dec 2 and Panelists and moderators will present remotely.
As per the earlier announcement on Nov 15, the authority stated that the meeting would be open to the public.
As the title reflects, the key agenda of this meeting will be focused on the regulatory framework and policies on digital assets, market structure issues, and defining risk in growing technologies. Also, hot topics such as block technologies, crypto-based exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and stablecoins will also be covered.
More than half of the penal members belong to crypto and blockchain backgrounds and the remaining panel is composed of luminary law professors and financial markets experts.
- Ali Emdad, professor and associate dean, Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management at Morgan State University, and founding director of the Center for the Study of Blockchain and Financial Technology
- Tyrone Ross, CEO, Onramp Invest
- Sydney Schaub, chief legal officer, general counsel, and corporate secretary, Gemini
- Kristin Smith, executive director, The Blockchain Association
The meeting will be broadcast on the SEC’s official website and people can also watch it later from archive files. The time between 10.45 AM to 12.45 PM EST has been allotted to the crypto panel.
Recently, the SEC took action against many crypto exchanges and crypto-related firms to regulate crypto expansion in the country. Recently, Invesco, an investment management firm, aborted the release of Bitcoin Exchange-traded funds (ETF) to comply with SEC’s rules.
Owing to this, most people are expecting to ask questions in this regard such as the SEC’s recent decision to decline approval of Jan VanEck’s spot ETF proposal and the nature of the Commission’s engagement with crypto companies. Yet, it is not clear what the panel will discuss.
