Ex-CFTC Boss Christopher Giancarlo Joins CoinFund as Advisor

Christopher Giancarlo, the previous Chairman of Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has joined blockchain-focused funding agency CoinFund as a strategic advisor.

Billed to advise the agency on issues referring to coverage, Giancarlo will deliver years of expertise serving as a serious determine within the United States regulatory panorama.

“It is a distinct honour to work with Chris as CoinFund’s strategic advisor. As crypto regulation and legislation is being formed in real-time in the United States, Chris stands out as one of the most authoritative experts and commentators when it comes to Web3 and crypto adoption, as well as capital market structure,” mentioned Jake Brukhman, CoinFund’s founder and CEO.

Christopher Giancarlo served as CFTC’s boss from August 2017 to July 2019 and achieved various historic milestones within the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Chris was instrumental within the approval of the primary Bitcoin derivatives product again in 2017, and his steady advocacy for the help of improvements bordering on digital currencies has earned him the title of ‘CryptoDad’ within the blockchain ecosystem.

Chris has usually defended the place for the United States to drift a Digital Dollar so as to not fall behind different superior economies like China which might be making seen strides within the discipline.

CoinFund’s President, Christopher Perkins, added “Chris was a driving force in supporting innovation at the CFTC, and continues to serve as a trailblazer and advocate for thoughtful crypto and web3 policy in the United States. With his track record, market reputation, and credentials, he will bring great value to CoinFund, our founders, and our portfolio of investments.”

While Chris presently holds various strategic positions starting from Senior Counsel at Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP since January 2020 and Co-Founder of The Digital Dollar Foundation (DigitalDollarChallenge.org) since January 2020, his addition to CoinFund in backing progressive initiatives for the digital forex ecosystem is seen by market observers as a plus level for the worldwide optics of the business.
