Event Synopsis
The growing market participation in digital asset transactions further drives governmental scrutiny, particularly in anti-money laundering enforcement involving cryptocurrencies. Recognizing the opportunities and risks presented by the tremendous growth of cryptocurrency, the Biden administration has issued an Executive Order on Ensuring Responsible Development of Digital Assets. The DOJ, with its new crypto crime-fighting enforcement team, also continuously expands its efforts to ramp up the prosecution of crypto-related offenses.

However, the applicable regulatory framework and the classification of cryptocurrency as a security, commodity, or currency remains unclear despite the ongoing developmental focus.

Join a panel of key thought leaders and distinguished professionals organized by The Knowledge Group as they provide a comprehensive discussion of anti-money laundering enforcement trends involving cryptocurrencies. Speakers, among other things, will also offer practical tips and strategies for transacting digital assets amidst legal uncertainties and unclear regulatory guidelines.

Key topics include:
• Crypto-Related Anti-Money Laundering Enforcement Updates
• Understanding the Executive Order on Ensuring Responsible Development of Digital Assets
• The DOJ’s New Crypto Crime-Fighting Task Force
• Best Practices for Transacting Digital Assets Amidst Legal Uncertainties
• What Lies Ahead
