Christopher Giancarlo, the chairman of the US Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), has affirmed that products such as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) were good for regulators overseeing financial markets. Giancarlo was speaking at the Fintech Week at Georgetown University where he addressed emerging technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence. He added that his commission should be more proactive about collecting data for regulatory planning purposes. With DLT, Giancarlo believes that regulators are in a better position to come up with well analysed policies.
