Thursday evening (EST) the World Stablecoin Association (WSA) hosted the first-ever World Stablecoin Summit, which could have been accessed via Zoom or through a VR platform Decentraland. Blockchain influencer Alex Saunders has shared his enthusiasm last night and called the Summit “a glimpse into the future”.
The World Stablecoin Association (WSA) is an independent, not-for-profit organization, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. The WSA unites business leaders, enterprises, community builders, and regulators internationally. Together they promote the global development of stablecoins and actively engage in the advocacy of digital currencies.
The WSA champions four pillars: policy analysis, education, partnerships and advocacy. The policy analysis committee will join forces with other research institutions, think tanks and associations to analyze the global regulatory and economic landscape of stablecoins. The education committee will publish educational material and arrange meetups and conferences including an annual World Stablecoin Summit each year. The partnerships committee will leverage relationships across industry verticals to support members in forming meaningful global alliances and the advocacy committee will act as the voice of the stablecoin industry and represent stablecoin projects and other industry vertices to accelerate the stablecoin policy-making process.
