Next Wednesday: John Beccia to Speak at the DC Bar’s Crypto Update: Current Issues Relating to Blockchain, Digital Assets and ICOs

WASHINGTON, DC — On December 12, FS Vector’s John Beccia will speak at Crypto Update: Current Issues Relating to Blockchain, Digital Assets and ICOs, hosted by the DC Bar. A distinguished panel of experts—including staff from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)—will provide valuable insights on industry developments, regulatory issues, and recent enforcement priorities relating to blockchain, cryptocurrency, token offerings and other digital assets.

Growing interest in cryptocurrencies and other digital assets presents opportunities and risks for investors. As industry innovates, financial regulators are keeping pace through a variety of regulatory and enforcement actions. Finding the balance between protecting consumers through these regulations and accommodating innovation will be key for continued change in the industry.  

As a leader within the industry and seasoned expert on financial-services regulations, John Beccia will speak on a panel with current and former regulators from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and White & Case law firm. Beccia previously served as General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer at Circle, Deputy General Counsel at Boston Private Financial Holdings, Inc. and Chief Regulatory Counsel for the Financial Services Roundtable. 

FS Vector is an advisory firm dedicated to helping innovative financial-services companies implement fintech and regtech initiatives, establish best practices, and navigate complex regulatory and legislative challenges. FS Vector works with companies across a variety of development stages – from start-ups that are addressing regulatory issues and building compliance programs for the first time; to growth-stage companies looking to scale and expand their offerings or geographic footprints; to mature financial institutions leveraging regtech and fintech solutions.

The event is open to the public and the media, although registration is required. The event will also be livestreamed here.
