Circle, the US company behind the popular stablecoin USDC, is set to testify in a Congress hearing on Wednesday about stablecoin regulation in the US.
In the hearing, titled “Understanding Stablecoins’ Role in Payments and the Need for Legislation,” Circle’s Chief Strategy Officer Dante Disparte is expected to make the case for why the US should support private companies that issues dollar-backed stablecoins on-chain.
In a tweet from Saturday, Disparte said he is “looking forward to representing Circle” at the hearing, noting that the event marks the first time a draft stablecoin bill has been shared in response to recommendations from the President's Working Group on Financial Markets.
Others expected to testify at the hearing includes Jake Chervinsky, Chief Policy Officer at the Blockchain Association, Austin Campbell, Columbia Business School adjunct assistant professor, and Adrienne Harris, Superintendent of the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS).
