Tel Aviv, Israel – Matthew Comstock of Murphy & McGonigle’s leading FinTech & Blockchain Practice delivered a keynote talk at the recent FinTech Junction Conference in Tel Aviv. Mr. Comstock, a former lawyer for the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), spoke on “The Regulation of Issuing, Trading and Exchanging Digital Assets – A View from the U.S.”
FinTech Junction is the largest fintech conference in Israel. More than 1,500 professionals attended this year’s gathering.
Elizabeth Lan Davis, who recently joined Murphy & McGonigle in Washington, DC from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), and New York partner James Goldfarb, were also featured speakers at FinTech Junction. Ms. Davis moderated a panel, “Innovative Ways to Meet KYC & AML Requirements and Prevent Fraud,” and spoke on another, “Cryptocurrency Regulation: Where Do We Stand Today, and What’s Coming Next?”
Mr. Goldfarb appeared on the panel, “Expert Advice: Things to Consider When Launching or Investing in ICOs.”
“The Israeli market for fintech and crypto currencies is sophisticated and dynamic,” said Mr. Goldfarb. “Because Israelis view the U.S. as a major market for customers and investors, conference attendees were very interested to hear about the latest U.S. regulatory developments, especially those impacting the issuance and trading of digital assets. The audiences really appreciated the perspectives of our FinTech & Blockchain Practice.”
