About this event

With volatility and shakeout in crypto markets, several bills have been introduced in Congress on how to regulate cryptocurrencies. Blockchain, the underlying technology behind cryptocurrencies, is already being used in a variety of areas from payments to real estate to supply chains. The Bipartisan Policy Center and Humanity Forward have partnered to study cryptocurrencies and blockchain to help guide policymakers on optimal policy. In the first event of the series, we will focus on the opportunities and challenges cryptocurrency and blockchain bring. Join us as we discuss financial inclusion, global competitiveness, and regulation.
