Digital assets: risks, opportunities and what’s next

Digital assets: risks, opportunities and what's next

  Mon 23 Jan 2023 15:00 - 18:00

Following the success of two US in-person roundtables on digital assets –which focused on innovation, regulation and operational resilience – the Digital Monetary Institute at OMFIF is pleased to announce its forthcoming high-level gathering, ‘Digital assets: risks, opportunities and what’s next’, taking place in Washington.

OMFIF is joined by Timothy Massad, director of the digital assets policy project at the Harvard Kennedy School and former chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, who also served as US Treasury assistant secretary for financial stability under President Barack Obama.

Massad, along with experts and practitioners from the public and private sectors, joins Patricia Haas Cleveland, US president of OMFIF, to discuss the importance of finding the right balance between ensuring guardrails are in place for investor protection and financial stability while allowing innovation to thrive. This balance is especially important as traditional and decentralised finance increasingly intermingle as new technologies, with varied applications, are impacting financial services and shaping the evolving digital economy.
