Regulatory Developments

in Financial Services




Tuesday, December 14th
10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
(Eastern Time - U.S. and Canada)
The volume of Brazilian cryptocurrency trading has exploded with Brazilians acquiring consistently USD350mn in bitcoin each month and over USD4bn year-to-date in 2021. With the adoption of bitcoin as the official currency of El Salvador, Brazilian authorities are looking at cryptos with increasing scrutiny. The Chamber brings together a panel of experts to explore the growth and role of cryptocurrencies in Brazil, including their use in the payment system, decentralized finance and exchanges, and cryptocurrencies as a unique asset class. We will discuss the regulatory treatment of cryptos, including tax, securities, and banking – and examine how Brazilian regulation fits in and compares to international regulation, including that in the United States.
Join us via Zoom, for this informative and practical discussion.
