expert panel

To successfully scale, crypto and blockchain companies need to know as much about business development as they do about their technology. Founders of crypto and blockchain companies launch with a vision of bringing an innovative and impactful service to the business or consumer marketplace.

expert panel

Absent clear, comprehensive regulatory guidance in the U.S., crypto companies would be wise to shore up their accounting systems.   The U.S. presents many obstacles to crypto companies, with a multiplicity of federal and state regulatory agencies having real or potential jurisdiction over the industry. Its unique political environment has contributed to more governmental skepticism toward crypto than is seen in other countries, and high-profile punitive actions by the Securities and Exchange Commission are making many crypto companies nervous about maintaining a foothold in the U.S. Despite all this, there is also high-profile support for crypto in the U.S., so many crypto companies will be unwilling to abandon or postpone entry to the U.S. market. While there may not be a single set of clear, comprehensive guidelines for crypto companies in the U.S., there are smart strategies that can help them stay on the right side of regulators. Below, eight members of Cointelegraph Innovation Circle share tips to help crypto companies improve their accounting procedures and compliance standing in the U.S.
