1/5 A message to US and Western Policymakers on how to think about China's approach to crypto and blockchain. China opposes the Western system of values built on openness, transparency, privacy, free market competition and so forth.

5/5 There are two modes of reacting to China in US. FOMO, envy and a belief that we should be more like them, given their ability to execute; vs a stoic / determined outlook that believes in the open internet. Be on the right side of history; embrace the open internet of value.

4/5 In the west, a rules-based order, based on open, free-market and democratic principles has provided a very strong foundation for economic and governance systems, and have the best hope of being extended by embracing open, public blockchains and digital assets.

3/5 Crypto and blockchain is an absolute threat to systems that are built around total control, centralisation of power, elimination of privacy, etc. which side of this do we want to be on?

2/5 The internet itself as an expression of these values , and it is one of the reasons that China has always fought to control the internet. These values are also deeply at the core of crypto and blockchains, enshrining them into new economic and governance infrastructure.

Listen to .@TomicahTD. On the nexus of policy, and technology there are few brighter minds. #DigitalPublicGoods
“If we think back on the 20th century, first you had key innovations like aviation or automobiles, and then you have investments in regulatory frameworks that helped to bring the benefits of those technologies to larger numbers of people.” @TomicahTD nytimes.com/2021/09/23/us/po…

Stablecoins “were created to… provide a way for dollar transactions to happen directly over the internet, fast, cheap, global,” @circlepay CEO @jerallaire says. “It’ll just become… as pervasive as things like email and text messaging and browsing the web.” Full comments:

Venture funds are one of the fastest growing segments of customers signing up for Circle Accounts. circle.com/en/circle-account
Someone asked me if my fund uses stablecoins. We use USDC all of the time! The benefits are we're able to send funds on evenings / weekends outside of bank hours, it's quick, often cheaper than a wire (especially internationally), and verifiable on the blockchain for both sides

Your article highlights the structural problems & limits of current financial services, including how some compliance regulations paradoxically create more types of risks. Compliance professionals/regulators need a paradigm shift in how they think about risk and the role of tech

.@AlpenSheth I'll take the bait and join the conversation. No doubt the efficacy of a "data rich outcomes poor" financial compliance framework needs to be revisited - especially in light of exponential tech as a new tool in the war against illicit finance.
We need to shift the current narrative among compliance regulators and professional on the risks of crypto/stablecoin and the collateral damage of the current AML/CFT regime on legal everyday economic activity

As world leaders meet at #UNGA76 to discuss #climatechange among other global issues, carriers have calculated the #insurance cost of inaction. As our Chairman, @ddisparte has written, it's time for #uncommoncoalitions (🔗 buff.ly/2XzZNLX) @FT buff.ly/3hLkhIr

1/2 Three years ago (Sept. 24th 2018), together with @coinbase, we launched USDC. Today, we celebrate that with USDC reaching 30 Billion in circulation. On track for 1000% growth in 2021.
