Hawley Troxell's Jonathan Wheatley & Bradlee Frazer will present a brief overview of federal regulations concerning all things crypto.
Today cryptocurrency and digital assets are subject to a patchwork of regulation in the United States. What kind of regulation applies and who enforces the regulation largely depends on what the entity is and what it is doing. The primary federal regulators include: the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the U.S. prudential bank regulators, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Department of Justice (DOJ). This year President Joe Biden issued an executive order calling on federal agencies to coordinate on policy for crypto.
