The Wall Street Blockchain Alliance (WSBA), an industry leading non-profit trade association with a mission to guide and promote comprehensive adoption of blockchain technology and cryptoassets across global markets, is proud to announce that Jason Brett, has been appointed to the WSBA Advisory Board.

In this role, Jason will spearhead governmental affairs efforts on behalf of the WSBA. Mr. Brett has several years of experience with blockchain technology and has presented to a wide range of U.S. government agencies and regulatory bodies. He has previously worked at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) Division of Finance and Capital Markets during the height of the 2008-2009 global financial crisis. Prior to this, Jason was the Director of Operations for the Chamber of Digital Commerce.

He is currently drafting a book about both the Global Recession and the publication of Satoshi Nakamoto's white paper, and what new technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence will mean for regulators in the future as they work to prevent or minimize the next financial crisis.

Notes Chairman of the WSBA, Ron Quaranta: “We are very fortunate to have Jason as a member of the WSBA Advisory Board. The impact of blockchain technology and cryptoassets across global markets will be directly impacted by the operation of governmental and regulatory bodies around the world. We look forward to working with Jason to advance the development of blockchain technology and cryptoassets across global markets and to collaborating with governmental bodies to aid this advancement.”

Commented Jason Brett: “I am thrilled to help the mission of the Wall Street Blockchain Alliance. I look forward to leading and guiding them in what is the next natural step in the evolution and growth of the WSBA with its governmental affairs efforts. I believe that this new technology as represented by the leaders of Wall Street can be better served with regulatory clarity. As an ex-regulator, I know how critical proper and tailored education delivered to the regulatory community in Washington D.C will be. As Commissioner Giancarlo of the CFTC recently pointed out, cryptocurrency is here to stay; therefore the WSBA is responsible for providing a conduit to discussions and questions regulators will have about this technology as it develops.”
