Congress and Crypto: What Happens Now? Photo

​Professor Howell Jackson (HLS) and Timothy Massad, director of the M-RCBG Digital Assets Policy Project and former chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, will discuss the current state of crypto regulation and the various ways that Congress is considering changing it. Will Congress pass legislation to regulate stablecoins in the lame duck session? Will the CFTC be given greater authority over the trading of crypto assets? Will Congress try to clarify or alter the powers of the SEC over crypto? They will also discuss the implications of the nine reports on digital assets issued this fall by the Biden Administration under its Executive Order on Ensuring Responsible Development of Digital Assets.

Lunch will be served for those joining us in person in the Democracy Lab (R414AB). Others should register to join us remotely via Zoom. This semester is being given as part of M-RCBG's Business & Government Seminar Series.
