The SEC has been trying to better understand the innovation behind cryptocurrencies, the use of blockchain technology and its necessary regulations. To arrive to some conclusion, they’ve previously requested input from both specialists and fanatics of this respective industry.

In an attempt to further understand the viewpoints of several other players in the field, namely, innovators, developers and entrepreneurs, the SEC has since initiated the Strategic Hub for Innovation and Financial Technology (FinHub).
