The United States Securities and Exchange’s Strategic Hub for Innovation and Financial Technology recently made an announcement on their website that they will be hosting a series of meetups across the United States that will help them to better engage with local crypto and fintech communities.

The first meetup is said to be taking place at the SEC’s regional office in San Francisco on March 26th before being launched in other parts of the country.

The Strategic Hub for Innovation and Financial Technology, better known as Finhub, was formed in 2018 in order to better help the SEC improve their engagement in fintech-related areas such as digital assets and distributed ledger technology.

The first meetup is said to be taking place at the SEC’s regional office in San Francisco on March 26th before being launched in other parts of the country. These meetups were developed with the intention of allowing anyone interested in the crypto or fintech industries to ask the staff of the SEC any questions that they may have about federal securities laws.

In order to attend one of these meetups, interested individuals must first register for their local event and then provide the SEC with the general subjects that they would like to be discussed at the meeting or more specific concepts (The agency states that many common questions can be found in their Spotlight on Initial Coin Offerings and Digital Assets guide). Specific categories that will be available for selection during registration will include “digital asset trading platforms”, “funds related to digital assets”, “advisory services related to digital assets”, and “digital marketplace financing”, to name a few. In addition, potential attendees can also forward relevant materials forward to the SEC that they wish to present at the meetup.

More information about the upcoming meetups and registration information can be found on the Finhub section of the SEC website.
