Early this Autumn, the Cryptocurrency Task Force set up by the Chancellor in April will deliver its Report. The Task Force is led by HM Treasury, the FCA and the Bank of England. Its deliberations will result in proposals as to how the UK should regulate this dynamic but highly controversial new medium of exchange.
Meanwhile the Treasury Select Committee has been probing into cryptocurrencies and worldwide, they have become a major focus of speculation and rapidly rising and falling fortunes from China to Venezuela.
This conference aims to give a forum for discussion of the Task Force’s Report, the following panel sessions will give all stakeholders the opportunity to state and debate their points of view:
- Cryptocurrencies: current state of development
- Cryptocurrencies: exchanges, payments and derivatives
- The Treasury Committee and cryptocurrencies
- Global cryptocurrency regulation – where are we?
- A Code of Conduct for cryptocurrencies
- Risks and regulation of Initial Coin Offerings
- The technological challenge of regulating cryptocurrencies
- The impact of cryptocurrencies on financial crime regulation
