US Congress Holds Hearing on Crypto: Witness Profiles

Today, on July 30, United States lawmakers will once again gather to debate cryptocurrency and blockchain policy in a hearing dubbed “Examining Regulatory Frameworks for Digital Currencies and Blockchain.” The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. EST and will be broadcast live.

This time, the U.S. Senate Banking Committee is planning to hold a broader discussion on crypto following the intense, Libra-focused testimony earlier this month. The witness panel will be represented by Jeremy Allaire, co-founder and CEO of payments company Circle, who will speak on behalf of the Blockchain Association; Rebecca M. Nelson, a specialist in international trade and finance at congressional think tank the Congressional Research Service; and law professor Mehrsa Baradaran from the Irvine School of Law at the University of California.

Here are the brief profiles of all three witnesses, along with their stance on regulation, based on their prepublished testimonies. Read More at CoinTelegraph...
