ABOUT DC FINTECH WEEK

During Fintech Week, thought leaders from fintech firms across the country–from PayPal and Amazon to OnDeck, and from Ripple and R3 to Cloud 9 Technologies and beyond–described their business, and explained how their services intersect with markets for a Washington, DC audience consisting of policymakers, market participants, academics, lawyers, and regulators..

Fintech Week’s origins lay in the unveiling of the OCC fintech charter by then Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry at Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law. Since then the IIEL has been a locus for some of Washington’s most vaunted and high profile discussions of fintech policy and innovation.

THIS YEAR’S AGENDA

Keynotes from the IMF, Heads of Top Regulatory Agencies and the Private Sector

As a kick-off to its Second Annual Fintech Week, Georgetown University’s Institute of International Economic Law will co-host with the International Monetary Fund a two-day research and policy workshop on crypto-assets.

The workshop—which will gather some of the world’s leading legal experts, economists, tech developers and regulators—will analyze the supervision, operation and utility of cryptocurrencies and accompanying blockchain technologies across global market, economic and legal ecosystems.  The following two days will focus on US regulatory developments in both crypto-markets and cybersecurity, as well as discuss market innovation and venture capital opportunities in fintech, regtech and data infrastructures.

The final day, co-hosted with the Institute for Financial Markets, takes us to Capitol Hill, steps from the Senate and House Congressional Offices. Participants will convene to discuss issues including Regulatory Sandboxes; Cross-border Fintech Regulation and Competition; and Cybersecurity and Digital Infrastructures.
