The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) is on the hunt for representatives from the digital currency and blockchain industry for a new advisory panel on fintech.
The OSC elaborated in a statement:
The advisory panel represents the latest effort to bridge the gap between regulators and startups working with disruptive technologies. In August, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the city-state’s central bank, beefed up a technology panel to include representatives from the blockchain space.
The OSC is also co-hosting a forum on fintech and blockchain in Toronto today, which includes a keynote discussion between OSC chair and CEO Maureen Jensen and blockchain startup Digital Asset Holdings CEO Blythe Masters.
Other speakers include R3 CEO David Rutter, ConsenSys founder Joseph Lubin and US Securities and Exchange Commission chair Mary Jo White.
