The webinar begins with a discussion between Rep. Tom Emmer, the Majority Whip of the U.S. House of Representatives, and Prof. J.W. Verret of the Antonin Scalia Law School regarding legislation introduced by Rep. Emmer and a coalition of members to prevent the Federal Reserve from introducing a CBDC. They also discuss the Treasury Department’s sanctioning of the Tornado Cash privacy protocol and the legal authority of that action. This discussion is followed by an expert panel that further explores these issues, as well as legislation proposed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren to ban crypto and other software privacy tools.
