VCA selects Exiger for counsel on crypto exchange integrity standards

The Virtual Commodity Association (VCA), a non-profit organization of cryptocurrency exchanges and custodians working to establish a self-regulatory organization (SRO) designation for U.S. cryptocurrency marketplaces, today announced the launch of six committees, two special advisors, and leadership appointments to help set standards, sound practices, and oversight to self-regulate cryptocurrency marketplaces.

The VCA is currently comprised of cryptocurrency exchanges bitFlyer, Bittrex, Bitstamp, and Gemini. The group’s goal of receiving SRO designation will be to formalize its broader mission to help protect America’s cryptocurrency investors.

The VCA has established six committees to address industry challenges identified by the regulatory community: Bank Secrecy Act (BSA)/Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Custody and Security, Enforcement, Insurance, Market Integrity, and Tax. Each committee will be led by an expert from its respective industry and establish frameworks for best practices.

“By establishing these committees, the VCA is highlighting key issues facing cryptocurrency exchanges and charting a way forward,” said Maria Filipakis, Interim Executive Director of the VCA. “I am profoundly grateful to the experts who have come together to lead this initiative.”

The VCA has also appointed Yusuf Hussain, Head of Risk at Gemini Trust Company, LLC, as Board of Directors’ President and Hailey Lennon, Esq., Head of Legal and Regulatory Affairs at bitFlyer USA, Inc. as Board of Directors’ Secretary.

“Several regulatory agencies have called upon our industry to provide better oversight and surveillance of cryptocurrency markets. Today the VCA has stood up six committees — including one dedicated to market integrity led by Exiger’s Michael Roe — that will address these concerns, while beginning to create a regulatory framework for virtual commodity marketplaces. These committees will adopt best practices and standards commonplace in traditional financial markets,” said Yusuf Hussain, President of the VCA

Special Advisors — Ellen Zimiles and Alma Angotti (Navigant Consulting, Inc.) and Dana Syracuse (Perkins Coie, LLP) — will work with and advise all committees.

The six committees and leads include:

“The VCA is grateful to the individuals and companies willing to commit their time towards these committees to help advance the goals of the VCA in fostering consumer protection and market integrity for the virtual currency industry,” said Hailey Lennon, Secretary of the VCA.
