Making New York the Crypto Capital
New York State has been at the forefront of the virtual currency industry since its founding, and continues to play a critical role in its growth, evolution, and regulatory future. In the absence of a strong federal framework, New York State has taken the lead, serving as the regulator of choice for many of the world's most respected cryptocurrency firms.
As investor interest and institutional capital fuels a surge in the industry many are wondering what it will take, from both industry and government, to ensure New York remains the long-term home of this fast growing sector.
On December 10th, we plan to explore these questions with a diverse panel of government and industry leaders.
