              Travis Hill, Don Nguyen, Adam Pollock, and Kevin Frankel (moderator)

              The panelists are Travis Hill, Don Nguyen, and Adam Pollock with Kevin Frankel as moderator.  The program will cover FCPA and AML enforcement and how the laws come into contact with banks; the current wave of deed fraud in real estate enforcement; and qui tam actions and the interplay between the plaintiff’s bar, state AGs, and how financial institutions can get caught in the mix.

                The Promise and Substantial Risks of the US Digital Dollar

                Dan Wheeler

                Dan Wheeler will be discussing the legal and policy ramifications of a U.S. central bank digital currency (the “digital dollar”).  Does the Federal Reserve have the authority and ability to implement the digital dollar?  What sort of efficiencies can be achieved by the digital dollar?  What industries would be disrupted?  How could the government use a digital dollar to invade privacy and control our lives?  Dan will discuss why digital currencies are so appealing to governments such as China and whether effective safeguards are possible.

                 

                Dan Wheeler is a longtime banking and fintech regulatory lawyer and a past president of the SFBAA.  He is a co-founder and the CEO of Sunstone Trust Company, the only new trust company formed in California in over 15 years.  Prior to successfully chartering Sunstone, Dan was the general counsel of a cryptocurrency company.  Before he became a full time entrepreneur, Dan was a partner at Bryan Cave and practiced law for over 20 years.
