WASHINGTON (July 30, 2019) How should government regulate cryptocurrencies, and what would be the effects of potential regulations? The Technology Policy Institute’s Aspen Forum will feature a fireside chat on these and related issues with Stuart Alderoty, the General Counsel and Executive Vice President of Ripple, the Forbes Blockchain 50 provider of leading enterprise blockchain solutions for global payments.
Alderoty will be interviewed by TPI Senior Fellow Sarah Oh on Monday, August 19, at 6:30 pm MDT, day two of the August 18-20 gathering of technology policy experts held annually at the St. Regis hotel in Aspen, Colorado.
Ripple connects banks, payment providers, and digital asset exchanges using its RippleNet blockchain. Alderoty oversees all legal, corporate governance and insurance risk management matters. He previously served as general counsel for HSBC North America Holdings, Inc. Prior to HSBC, Alderoty was managing counsel at American Express, and before that was a partner with the law firm of LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene and MacRae.
The fireside chat will address some of the most pressing questions around blockchain policy. How does the U.S. regulatory environment compare with other global jurisdictions for the regulation of crypto-asset markets? Which regulatory agencies are currently shaping cryptocurrency rules and regulations? How does XRP compare with other crypto assets? Will we all be using cryptocurrency one day?
In addition to his role at Ripple, Alderoty serves on the Board and Executive Committee of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association, a not-for-profit association that advocates for the expanded hiring, retention and promotion of minority attorneys in corporate law departments and the law firms that serve them. He also serves on the Board and Executive Committee of the Count Basie Center for the Arts, a not-for-profit community arts center in Red Bank, New Jersey. Alderoty is also the Advisory Board Chair of the Rutgers University Law School Center for Corporate Law and Governance.
