The forthcoming hearing is scheduled for June 13th, 6 PM (UTC), at the prestigious Rayburn House Office Building.
According to committee representatives, the hearing focusing on digital currencies will also be streamed online through the committee's official website.
As a crucial body for economic supervision, the Financial Services Committee carries the weight of the nation's economy. Its obligations extend to scrutinizing the Federal Reserve Board and individual reserve banks, managing the United States Treasury, and overseeing capital markets. It also plays a pivotal role in the production and distribution of currency.
The committee has kept specific details regarding the topics to be explored during the hearing under wraps, prompting anticipation and speculation within the crypto community. Many are hopeful that this event will shine a light on some of the most urgent concerns in the sector.
Certain online reactions to the upcoming hearing underline the need for addressing what is described as "coordinated attacks" on crypto exchanges. A Twitter user made this comment, referring to the recent actions by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) against Binance and Coinbase.
This announcement of the upcoming hearing follows the recent digital assets hearing titled "The Future of Digital Assets: Providing Clarity for Digital Asset Spot Markets" conducted by the US House of Representatives Agricultural Committee on June 6th. During that hearing, an in-depth discussion was held on the future of digital assets, including a draft bill by McHenry and House Ag chair Glenn Thompson.
