About this Event

The BBA is excited to share the first event in our 2024 series on the institutional adoption of blockchains and digital assets will be March 11th at The Boston Fed. Doors Open at 2pm.

Our series will continue to focus on the perspectives of leaders in the institutional ecosystem who are building and scaling in the right and compliant way. We look to continue to provide unique insights to the drivers for market innovations, navigation of the regulatory landscapes, client segments and product adoption.

Fresh off the January 11th milestone SEC ETF approval, this event will include a one-on-one fireside chat with SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce, followed by a panel of asset managers who have also been focused on the development and support of spot BTC ETP funds, and the third session will be a panel focused on institutional digital asset compliance and oversight.
