Joseph Hall to speak at NYFWA’s “The Ripple Effect" webcast
February 23, 2021


On February 23, 2021, Davis Polk partner Joseph Hall will be among the speakers on New York Financial Writers’ Association’s “The Ripple Effect: How and Why the SEC Targeted One Specific Cryptocurrency” panel discussion. Panelists will discuss the ins and outs of how and why the SEC labeled XRP a security, which is something it has not done for any other widely traded cryptocurrency. Other topics discussed will include:

• Why were regulators focused on XRP instead of bigger fish such as Bitcoin or Ethereum?

• Are cryptocurrencies actually securities, currencies or an entirely new asset class?

• Is SEC Chair-designee Greg Gensler, who is known to be more crypto-friendly, likely to drop the suit?
