Sarah Martin to Speak on Day 3
One of the speakers at Inside Bitcoins New York will be Sarah Martin, CEO of Boone Martin, a global communications firm that focuses on social impact investing and emerging markets. Martin will speak on day 3 of the event, April 29, 2015.
Prior to founding Boone Martin, Sarah served as a public policy analyst for the US Dept of State, US Dept of Defense, USAID, UN, Harvard School of Public Health, and Princeton University.
Sarah’s Topic: Emerging Issues in Regulatory Compliance and Law Enforcement Efforts
With the emergence of bitcoin, there has been a plethora of questions and concerns regarding compliance issues and how it should be handled by the law. Indeed, lack of bitcoin regulation poses a real threat to security and the adoption of bitcoin. So, what is one of the biggest issues that bitcoin regulation needs to solve?
Sarah Martin says,
“Uncertainty. Regulatory clarity would benefit not only the bitcoin industry, but also the wider business community. A common hangup I hear from friends just outside the bitcoin ecosystem is that even though they’re eager to explore digital currency, many companies are reluctant to move forward without clear guidance. We’re getting closer – both in the US and internationally. I’m looking forward to seeing the fruits of smart, collaborative regulatory progress this year.”
