APAICS & Blockchain Association Virtual Blockchain Briefing
Time & Location
About the Event
In the United States, an estimated 55 million people are unbanked, underbanked, or lack access to centralized finance. The 2008 recession exposed the failures of the traditional financial system. Advancements in fintech have moved the needle, but the COVID-19 pandemic illustrated that we must transform digital service delivery to the most vulnerable. The blockchain and cryptocurrency industry is building new solutions to tackle these inequities and create a future that is open, secure, and transparent. The more options available to every individual, the more inclusive money becomes.
During this briefing, industry leaders will discuss the regulatory minefields innovators face, the complex consumer protection and security concerns lawmakers must navigate, and the need for regulatory clarity to foster innovation in America. Experts from the Blockchain Association and its member companies – Filecoin Foundation, Rally, Binance.us - will also discuss initiatives to advance financial inclusion and economic empowerment. Additionally, Members of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) will provide context for the policy debate in Washington.
