Digital currency has the potential to be instant and global, but to what extent will the realization of this potential be stymied by regulation? How can this type of innovation maintain both momentum and regulatory compliance? Among other things, Amber Scott, Chief AML Ninja at Outlier Solutions, and Joseph Ciccolo, Head of BitAML, will be addressing these questions at the upcoming Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Blockchain SuperConference slated for February of 2018. Admittedly one of the biggest challenges to the cryptocurrency industry, potential remedies for regulatory restrictions are already surfacing. “We can demonstrate as an industry to the regulators that not only are we are in a position to have a strong compliance program in place to meet their requirements as a regulatory body, but at the same time we have some other tools at our disposal as an industry that are creative, and that in many cases are ahead of traditional bank compliance AML tools,” says Ciccolo. Tune in to hear more.
Scott and Ciccolo also discuss:
- The additional challenges presented by the local nature of regulation
- The position and attitude of federal US agencies on innovation and regulation, as well as state impact on money transmission regulation
- Canada’s current status on the topic, and the intent of Canadian regulators
- Additional topics that they plan to discuss at the 2018 SuperConference
