King & Spalding, the Electronic Transactions Association, and PricewaterhouseCoopers invite you to join us for the FinTech and Beyond Summit (FABS): The Regulation of Payments, Cryptocurrencies and the Blockchain. The event will be held on the afternoon of June 14th at the Palace Hotel in downtown San Francisco.
The internet and computing technologies have revolutionized the way banking and financial services are offered and delivered. Digital currencies are transforming capital raising and questioning traditional views of money and assets. In the current environment, innovation is the “new normal.” This innovation is increasing accessibility to financial products and services across socioeconomic and geographic boundaries, and creating alternative sources of capital for companies and communities. But while change promotes growth and inspires creativity, rapid change invites significant scrutiny. Regulators are increasingly focused on this innovative marketplace to better understand both the opportunities and challenges it presents. Dialogue among innovators, entrepreneurs, legal practitioners, and regulators is key to a regulatory framework that protects participants while encouraging innovation.
We invite you to join us on June 14th, where business, legal, and regulatory stakeholders will come together to examine recent regulatory developments and product innovation in the following areas: cryptocurrencies, crypto-tokens and ICOs, the blockchain, mobile payments, AML/BSA compliance, OFAC economic sanctions screening, data privacy and localization, data access and aggregation, cybersecurity, and strategic transactions.
FABS will feature two interviews with and four panels made up of thought leaders and practitioners from King & Spalding, the Electronic Transactions Association, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Square Capital, Intuit, Visa, Plaid, Stripe, PayPal, SharesPost, Harbor, Coinbase, the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, and more.
