SEC launching a public forum to discuss DLT and cryptocurrencies on May 31

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has announced today that it will be hosting a public forum on distributed ledger technology (DLT) and digital assets on May 31, 2019.

The forum is being organized by the agency’s Strategic Hub for Innovation and Financial Technology (FinHub). FinHub was developed to oversee market participants involved in new financial technologies.

This forum will be the second of its kind, the first one taking place in September 2016. The forum will feature panelists from industry and academia with the hope of fostering greater communication and understanding around issues involving blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.

The panelists are expected to explore topics such as initial coin offerings, digital asset platforms, DLT innovations, and how these technologies will affect investors and the market as a whole. It will take place in SEC’s Washington D.C. headquarters on May 31 and will be open to the public and webcast live via the SEC’s website. More information is expected to be published closer to the time.

The announcement comes shortly after SEC Chairman Jay Clayton expressed concern over possible Bitcoin ETF manipulation, casting serious doubts over whether we’ll see a Bitcoin ETF approval anytime soon.
