Episode 12: Financial Privacy, Digital Currency and Stablecoin Payments
Play • 46 min

One of the major issues that has vexed policy makers and regulators, and is fundamental to the growth and adoption of crypto currency and blockchains is issues around financial privacy. How can we be assured of our privacy with blockchain payments? Are there risks of government and law enforcement overreach? On the flip side, what are the boundaries of financial privacy for individuals and what risks do privacy preserving technologies pose to governments?

What about corporate and commercial privacy — public blockchains are transparent, how can a company adopt this and not disclose private transaction activity as a firm?

What are the technology and policy answers to these questions? Live on YouTube Thursday, July 16 at 1pm EDT The crypto and blockchain industry have a long history of engagement with policy makers in DC, dating back to 2013 when the Senate held its first public hearings on virtual currency.


This week on the Money Movement we are joined by three guests who have been at the forefront of working the digital currency scene in DC. Joining us are Perianne Boring, the founder and president of the Chamber of Digital Commerce, Kristin Smith, the Executive Director of the Blockchain Association, and John Collins, founding partner at FS Vector, a premier advisory firm in the blockchain policy space.


Tune-in and join us live on YouTube Thursday, July 16 at 1pm EDT, and subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and YouTube.
