Event Details

The Institute for Financial Markets and the Mercatus Center at George Mason University are co-hosting an educational event on the financial regulation of cryptocurrencies. Join us for this timely conversation on the regulation of crypto-assets within the securities and futures markets.

Learn as leading experts discuss the current state of play in cryptocurrencies. How are they being used and what problems can they potentially solve? How are cryptocurrencies currently regulated and does that regulation make sense? Hear from scholars, regulators, and industry experts as they debate whether digital assets pose unique risks and how regulators should adapt to the new technology.

This meaningful study will discuss what structural, procedural, or substantive regulatory changes might need to be addressed and what policymakers and regulators might do to help cryptocurrencies achieve their potential while minimizing risk.
