Garlinghouse And Gensler To Share Same Stage
The upcoming DC Fintech Week will feature Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse and SEC Chairman Gary Gensler as headline speakers. The event will take place from November 6 to 9.
BIS announced the lineup of speakers for DC Fintech Week on Twitter. This news has sparked speculation within the crypto community, as Garlinghouse and Gensler may cross paths at the event.
For XRPArmy, it’s ironic to see Gensler sharing the stage with Garlinghouse after the recent court losses the SEC suffered against Ripple.
Legal Drama With SEC
Garlinghouse and Executive Chairman Chris Larsen are no longer facing charges from the SEC. In July, a federal judge ruled that XRP is not a security. The SEC’s requests for an appeal were also rejected by a judge.
Gensler will also share the stage with Grayscale Investments CEO Michael Sonnenshein at DC Fintech Week. The SEC suffered a significant loss against Grayscale when the courts ordered it to allow the conversion of approximately $17 billion GBTC to a bitcoin exchange-traded fund.
DC Fintech Week will provide a platform for discussions on crypto regulation. The presence of industry leaders and regulators will offer insights into the future of cryptocurrency regulation in the US.
