Brent McIntosh, chief legal officer at Citi and under secretary for international affairs, US Treasury (2019-21) and Christian Catalini, founder, MIT Cryptoeconomics Lab and research scientist of MIT,  join OMFIF to discuss the US political landscape and how election outcomes might influence crypto regulatory frameworks, market dynamics and innovation.

In light of the recent legislative action in the House of Representatives, such as the Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century Act on crypto market structures and the CBDC Anti-Surveillance State Act, this session will delve into how the 2024 election results will change the trajectory of crypto and digital legislation, and explore how stakeholders, both abroad and domestic, should prepare.
