MONDAY: John Collins to speak at the World Digital Assets Summit San Francisco 2018

SAN FRANCISCO — On December 10, FS Vector’s John Collins will speak at the annual World Digital Assets Summit in San Francisco, California. The conference will showcase the most cutting-edge and forward-thinking trends, technology and projects within the blockchain space.  

The World Digital Asset Summit will bring the best-in-class blockchain projects, developers and investors under one roof. A diverse group of thought leaders, educators, legislators and enthusiasts will join to explore the potential of a revolutionary industry and combine the world of innovation with real-life applications. As technology transforms the financial services sector, finding the balance between protecting consumers through regulation and fostering innovation will be crucial.

As a seasoned expert on regulatory and legislative policy change in the industry, John Collins will speak on a panel of experts discussing the intersection of traditional financial services with the quickly emerging crypto and digital asset ecosystem. Collins previously served as Head of Policy at Coinbase and Vice President of International Policy at the Bankers Association for Finance and Trade. During his time as a senior staffer in the United States Senate, he organized the first Congressional hearing on cryptocurrencies and blockchain.
