The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission will hold its second Fintech Forum on May 31, at the agency’s Washington, DC headquarters. The public forum will be focused on blockchain technology and digital assets, according to an SEC press release announcing the event.
The forum has been organized by the SEC’s Strategic Hub for Innovation and Financial Technology (FinHub) and is designed to further FinHub’s “active engagement with market participants on new financial technologies.”
The forum is the second such forum to be hosted by the agency, will feature panelists from industry and academia, and is designed to foster greater communication and understanding around issues involving DLT and digital assets. Panelists will explore such topics as initial coin offerings, digital asset platforms, DLT innovations, and how these technologies impact investors and the markets.
The Fintech Forum will be open to the public, and the agency plans to conduct a live webcast on its website. Additional details about the forum and participants are expected to be released over the next several weeks.
