You know that regulators are getting with the program when the US Federal Reserve Governor carries out an entire speech about the blockchain. Governer Brainhard recognized that the emerging "Internet of Value" as he called it, will allow the removal of friction points in clearing and settlement processes. The great outcome of this is that it shows that government bodies, like the Reserve, feel more comfortable relying on the blockchain as a secure and resilient technology. Expectations remain on regulators to make the regulatory adjustments that will help facilitate the growth and usage of blockchain.
