Watch the webinar:
The Webinar will be Part II of our Virtual Symposium Series, “Dodd-Frank at Ten: New Challenges, Innovations and Developments in Financial Regulation. In Part II, we will focus on the rulemakings that arose from the Dodd-Frank Act (and subsequent changes thereto), and on what could be on the regulatory/legislative horizon going forward. Topics will include rulemaking developments relating to Capital, Enhanced Prudential Requirements, Systemic Safety & Soundness, Derivatives, and Foreign Banking Organizations.
Part I: “Initial Coin Offerings Three Years Later”
Part II: Proof-of-Work Mining with Time-Shared Hashing Power”
Professor David Yermack, a renowned scholar in blockchain and fintech. Professor Yermack is Chair of the Finance Department of NYU Stern Business School, Albert Fingerhut Professor of Finance and Business Transformation, and the Director of the NYU Pollack Center for Law and Business.
Professor Yermack will present on two cutting-edge topics. The first part of his speech, “Initial Coin Offerings Three Years Later,” that ICOs have demonstrated surprisingly solid investment returns. Given the strong enforcement stance on ICOs and other forms of raising capital through crypto-offerings, David Yermack’s findings are vital for future policies in crypto and fintech. Professor Yermack’s second presentation topic will be more technical – “Proof-of-Work Mining with Time-Shared Hashing Power.” It will address the dangers and conflicts of mining.
The Webinar will include an historic overview of the financial crisis, the legislation and its designed impact on financial stability, capital markets, consumer protection, and the Fed’s ability to respond to the next crisis.
