John Collins Joins the FinTech Ideas Festival Policy Series As a Panelist

WASHINGTON, DC — On October 10, FS Vector’s John Collins will speak at the 2nd Annual FinTech Ideas Festival Policy Series on navigating the shifting regulatory landscape, hosted by the Bank Policy Institute.  

The world is more financially connected and technologically empowered than ever before. As new technologies change our daily lives, the financial industry, technologists, innovators and policymakers all have a role in ensuring customers can access their full financial potential while keeping the financial system safe. The Policy Series explores the topics of the FinTech Ideas Festival through the lens of public policy.

As a seasoned expert on regulatory and legislative policy change in this industry, John Collins will discuss the regulatory challenges and policy barriers faced by fintech firms, start-ups and financial institutions looking to innovate. Collins previously served as Head of Policy at Coinbase and cofounded the First State Fintech Lab, a nonprofit focused on bolstering the fintech ecosystem in the state of Delaware. During his time as a senior staffer in the United States Senate, he organized the first Congressional hearing on cryptocurrencies and blockchain.
