If decentralized finance (DeFi) becomes an increasingly common reality rather than an alternative parallel financial system, could government regulators fall far behind? In a word, no. But how can a system designed for remote peer-to-peer transactions without intermediaries be properly regulated without stifling innovation?

This is one of the many hotly debated and, according to some, controversial topics you’ll find at DeFi and The Future of Programmable Money, a free one-day virtual summit on March 30, 2022.

Professional advice: Participation in DeFi and Future of Programmable Money is free, but you must register to secure a seat at the cryptocurrency table. The summit is sponsored by Sommelier Finance, a leading crypto project co-founded by Zaki Manyan, designed to automate decentralized financial trading.

DeFi is a complex industry, and regulating it is no small feat. That is why we are pleased that Hester Pierce, serving as Commissioner of the SEC, is addressing this important topic and sharing his vast knowledge and experience.

Pierce will be joined by Christine Smith (The Blockchain Association), Miller Whitehouse-Levin (DeFi Education Foundation), and Zaki Manyan (Sommelier Finance) for a session on:

DeFi and rules: DeFi regulation is here. How can regulators interact productively with the ecosystem, and what can DeFi projects do to bring regulators to the negotiating table?

Pierce, who began serving as an SEC commissioner in January 2018, has a long and distinguished history of supporting the crypto industry, and is referred to by many in the community as “cryptomam.” We can’t wait to hear their views on what is needed to create a realistic regulatory framework.

Regulators are following cryptocurrencies. Ask your questions and engage in lively conversation. While you’re at it, be sure to review the agenda.
