Crypto entities ranging from large exchanges to small projects are moving towards state regulation. Whether through the Securities and Exchange Commission or the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, many actors in the space are looking for concrete future guidelines for building compliant companies in an emerging sector while navigating rules developed for traditional financing. .
And while crypto founders and investors know that regulation is inevitable, they are also looking for the best deal possible while trying to influence policymakers. It’s a challenging balance – enough regulation to protect retail investors from a hostile environment, but not so much that it stifles crypto sector growth and future innovation in the space.
This regulatory wrangling is just one reason why we’re thrilled to have Katherine Dowling, general counsel and chief compliance officer at Bitwise Asset Management, join us on stage at TC Sessions: Crypto in Miami on November 17.
We will discuss whether or not there is an increase in institutional adoption and how the regulatory framework may influence adoption in the future. Given the frustration at the lack of clarity in regulatory guidance, we’ll ask Dowling how crypto legal firms and attorneys advise clients to navigate the current landscape while still operating in a compliant manner.
Dowling brings a unique perspective to the table, with experience in both private equity firms and as a federal prosecutor in the Economic Crimes Unit of the US Attorney’s Office. We’ll be covering the latest insights on how emerging regulatory frameworks will affect the digital asset industry and her take on whether we can expect clarity on this in the US by the end of the year.
Prior to joining Bitwise, Dowling held positions as general counsel, CCO and COO at various financial and private equity firms. She also co-founded Luminate Capital Partners, where she held positions as primary care physician, general manager and COO.
A Harvard law graduate, Dowling spent more than a decade as a federal prosecutor, most recently in the economic crimes unit of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California, where she worked with the FBI, SEC, IRS, and others. authorities to, among other things, insider trading, fraud and money laundering. She also serves on the boards of two non-profit organizations.
