Anthony Scaramucci Offers His Thoughts on Crypto

bba-event

Last week’s event

Last week’s event featured a pre-recorded interview with the SEC’s Hester Peirce. It took place at the law offices of Nutter and drew a large crowd despite the limited space. A big thank you to our terrific panelists and to Ms. Peirce.

The event also featured a letter-writing campaign to Massachusetts Senators Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren asking them to support the new blockchain bill co-written by Kristen Gillibrand of New York and Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming. We sent 100 signed letters to their offices, so we’re hoping this will have a majorly positive impact towards good regulation of the crypto space.
