Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson, who also doubles as the CEO of Input Output Global, has declared on Twitter that he will be addressing the U.S. House of Representative Committee on Agriculture about cryptocurrency and blockchain by next week.
The IOG chief also added that the conference will hold on 23rd June at 10:30 AM (PST) and that people, including crypto enthusiasts, can watch the event live on YouTube.
“I just received a formal invitation to speak before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture about blockchain and cryptocurrencies. It will be live June 23rd at 10:30 AM EST if anyone wants to watch it over YouTube,” Hoskinson said.
CFTC to Control Cryptocurrency Regulations
The U.S. House of Reps Committee on Agriculture supervises federal agriculture policy and some federal agencies, including the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).
Recently, the agency has been interested in giving the CFTC more control to regulate cryptocurrency activities in the U. S.
While the Securities and Exchange Commission could not provide clear crypto regulations, prominent cryptocurrency players have noted that the digital asset market would be in a better position if the CFTC became the regulatory body.
Hoskinson continues to lead the quest to advocate for fair crypto regulations. However, the general cryptocurrency community believes he has all it takes to convince the House of Reps committee that the CFTC can control the crypto market.
