As the digital asset world matures from its infancy and adoption accelerates, the regulatory landscape has lagged. Self-regulatory organizations (SROs) may be able to provide the necessary link between the regulations, the digital asset industry, and the federal government. Though SROs can take lessons from the traditional security and commodities markets, there are distinct differences and concerns.
While SROs may hold the keys to digital asset regulation, ultimately success will depend on industry actors coming together in good faith to advance the broader public interest.
In this lively session, industry experts, Alma Angotti (Guidehouse), Gabriella Kusz (Global Digital Asset and Cryptocurrency Association), Suzanne Elovic (Parallel Markets) and Caitlin Barnett (Chainlaysis) discuss what good self-regulation looks like, the role technology plays, and how lessons learned in the current regulated market can apply to digital assets.
“Part of what you have to think about when you thinking as a self-regulatory organization is maturation and evolution. What it could be 10 years from now versus what it should be on day one are two different things.”
