United States Strategic Hub for Innovation and Financial Technology [Finhub] at the Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC] will host a series of peer-to-peer [p2p] meetups across the country. This initiative aims to engage more people in the crypto and fintech community and was announced on the agency’s website recently.
Finhub was created in the fall of 2018 to facilitate the SEC’s engagement in fintech-related areas, which also includes distributed ledger technology [DLT] and digital assets, reported Cointelegraph. It was headed by Valerie A. Szczepanik, Senior Advisor for Digital Assets and Innovation and Associate Director at the SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance.
This meetup will enable investors, developers, attorney and entrepreneurs to engage in person with the staff of SEC to clarify any questions or requests which fall under the regulatory body’s purview under federal securities laws.
The meetup will first take place on March 26 at the SEC’s regional office in San Francisco, before opening it to other offices in the country. People who are interested in attending the meetup not only have to register, but also have to mention their sphere of interest and a specific purpose for attending the mentioned meeting. The public can choose from interests like advisory services related to digital assets, digital asset trading platforms, digital marketplace financing, and funds related to digital assets.
For the latter, the public is offered a choice between custody inquiries, determination of instrument as a security, and other registration inquiries for intermediaries, securities, funding portals or trading platforms, reported the publication.
The people who are likely to be present at the meetup will be able to hand over detailed information, research, and any other supporting materials to the SEC staff. Apart from its latest efforts to make its activities more accessible to the fintech community and crypto community, SEC was actively promoting its Initial Coin Offerings guidance on their Twitter social media handle.
