The Strategic Center for Innovation and Financial Technology of the United States (Finhub) in the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will hold a series of peer-to-peer (P2P) meetings throughout the United States.
This initiative aims to involve more people in the cryptographic and fintech community and was recently announced on the agency’s website.
About the meeting
The meetings will begin in the San Francisco area on March 26, at the SEC’s regional office, before spreading to other offices throughout the country.
Finhub was created in the fall of 2018 to facilitate the SEC’s involvement in technology-related areas that also include distributed general ledger (DLT) technology and digital assets, CoinTelegraph reported. It was directed by Valerie A. Szczepanik, Senior Advisor, Digital Assets and Innovation and Associate Director, Corporate Finance Division, SEC.
This meeting will allow investors, promoters, lawyers and businessmen to personally participate with SEC staff to clarify any questions or requests that fall within the scope of the regulatory agency under federal securities laws.
Those interested in attending the meeting not only have to register, but must also mention their sphere of interest and a specific purpose to attend the meeting.
Digital info, the big star
The public can choose between interests such as advisory services related to digital assets, digital assets trading platforms, digital market financing and funds related to digital assets.
For the latter, the public is offered the possibility of choosing between custody inquiries, instrument determination as collateral and other registry queries for intermediaries, securities, funding portals or trading platforms, the publication reported.
People who are likely to be present at the meeting will be able to provide detailed information, research and other support material to SEC staff.
In addition to its latest efforts to make its activities more accessible to the fintech community and the cryptocurrency community, the SEC actively promoted its Initial Coins Offers (ICO) guide on its Twitter social media account.
