He assured the community that irrespective of whom they voted for, he’s the chairman for everyone and the new leadership is getting to work immediately from the day one.
Senator Ihenyen also shared his intention to take SiBAN to the next levels through Policy Development and Regulatory Intervention. According to him, SiBAN has to be proactive. He said regulators in the past have been coming up with regulations while the industry rubber stamps them, but now, SiBAN will be coming up with something more proactive.
He argued that stakeholders in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space should be able to come forward with policy draft that will be used to engage regulators and other stakeholders so that they can look at these policies when coming up with regulations.
