Blockchain and Crypto Industry Self-Regulation

The largest blockchain and cryptocurrency summit, CoinDesk's Consensus 2018 is a three-day conference, now in its 4th year. This year's event attracted over 8,000 attendees to New York City for the main event and ancillary meetings and conferences.

Nasdaq's Global Markets Reporter Jill Malandrino interviewed many of the innovative entrepreneurs working on the latest applications, platforms and solutions that utilize blockchain, machine intelligence and cryptocurrency.

In this episode, Jill interviews Perianne Boring, the founder and president of the Chamber of Digital Commerce. The Chamber of Digital Commerce's mission is to promote the use of digital assets like cryptocurrency and tokens as well as blockchain-based technologies. The chamber focuses on education and advocacy.

The interview with Perianne covered a variety of topics, here are a few of the highlights:

  1. A review of what the Chamber of Digital Commerce is and its role at Consensus 2018. This includes a variety of side events such as the Women on the Block event and the chamber's annual members' meeting.

  2. Update on the Token Alliance. The alliance is a global working group of the Chamber drafting best practices for tokens and the Initial Coin Offering process (ICO) in the absence of guidance or regulation. The focus is on self-regulation.

  3. The focus of the industry being out in front of regulators rather than rely on them to come up with legislation and regulations.

  4. An overview of the current relationship with legislators and regulators with regard to blockchain and cryptocurrency.
