美国证券交易委员会举办金融科技公共论坛

在9月28日发布的一份声明中,美国证券交易委员会称将于今年11月4日在首都华盛顿举办公共论坛,重点讨论金融科技创新。

美国证券交易委员会(SEC)是联邦机构,负责监督全美股票交易和电子化证券市场。目前,SEC已经对金融科技给予肯定。

公共论坛将使监管者、企业和行业专家协同合作。很明显,这次集会将看到当今管理环境评估,也意味着朝着创新不受阻力的共同管理方向发展。

主要金融科技改变驱动力中,新闻稿突出强调了区块链。摘录如下:

金融科技创新激增,有潜力切实改变美国金融市场的各个方面。专家组将讨论诸多课题,如区块链技术、自动化投资建议或机器顾问、在线市场借贷、众筹以及他们将如何影响投资者。

公告公布那天,新的会议组织——区块链会议核心小组成立,这个小组专注于为加密货币(如比特币)及其他以区块链为基础的技术提供良好的公共政策。

上个月,SEC前主席Arthur Levitt Jr.在专栏中反驳了对区块链创新的最大成果比特币持否定或怀疑态度的人。Levitt认为比特币能越过边界,到达世界上没有银行服务的地区,强调密码货币将有潜力彻底打乱支付市场。

Levitt是SEC任职时间最长的主席,过去已显示出他对比特币的认可,他曾直接表述:"比特币是快速改变世界的金融服务中最好的新产品。"

此次论坛将通过SEC网站全程向公众直播。更多细节将在未来几周公布。

In an announcement today, the Securities and Exchange Commission said it will host a public forum to discuss Fintech innovation at its Washington D.C. headquarters in November.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the federal body which serves as the regulator for all of the United States’ stock exchanges and electronic securities markets, has given the inevitable nod to financial technology.

On November 14, the federal agency will host a public forum to discuss Fintech innovation in the financial services industry.

The public forum will be geared towards a collaborative effort among regulators, entrepreneurs and industry experts. Significantly, the gathering will also see the current regulatory environment evaluated, hinting toward a unified approach to ensure innovation isn’t stifled.

The press release highlighted blockchain among the chief Fintech drivers of change. An excerpt read:

The proliferation of Fintech innovation has the potential to transform virtually every aspect of our nation’s financial markets. The panels will discuss issues such as blockchain technology, automated investment advice or robo-advisors, online marketplace lending and crowdfunding, and how they may impact investors.

The announcement comes within a day of the formation of a new congressional group, the Congressional Blockchain Caucus, which will focus on promoting sound public policies toward cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and other blockchain-based technologies.

Last month, Arthur Levitt Jr., former chairman of the SEC, argued in a column against the naysayers and skeptics of the biggest blockchain innovation of them all, bitcoin. Levitt sees bitcoin transcending borders to parts of the world which aren’t served by banking institutions, underlining the cryptocurrency’s potential to firmly disrupt the payments industry.

Levitt, who was also the longest serving chairman of the SEC, has shown his endorsement to bitcoin in the past, while notably stating:

Bitcoin is a fascinating new product in the rapidly changing world of financial service.

The SEC’s public Fintech forum will be held at its headquarters in Washington D.C. on Nov. 14. The event will be open to the public, with a live webcast covering proceedings on the SEC’s website. Further details are expected to be published in the coming weeks.
