Carol Goforth, the Clayton N. Little Professor of Law, has been selected to serve on the prestigious Global Digital Asset and Cryptocurrency Association Steering Committee.

The Global DCA is a leading trade association for the digital asset and cryptocurrency industry in collaboration with the Global Blockchain Business Council, The Digital Chamber and The Proof of Stake Alliance. The steering committee's purpose is to propose disclosure guidelines for digital asset tokens offered in the United States.

Goforth will serve alongside top law and finance scholars from across the United States and U.S. attorneys leading in the field of blockchain, digital assets and Web3.

"I am honored to be included in this amazing group of people working on developing a proposal for disclosure guidelines for cryptoassets to be sold in the U.S.," Goforth said. "I have long been concerned about the lack of workable and meaningful guidance for participants in the crypto industry, and this project could help move the prospects for reasonable regulation forward in a way that protects potential purchasers and legitimate businesses at the same time."

Goforth specializes in business associations and securities regulation. She is a leading expert on the regulation of cryptoassets and transactions. West Academic published the second edition of her textbook Regulation of Cryptoassets in 2022. In addition, she has written more than a dozen published journal articles focused on the regulation of cryptoassets, and she provides regular commentary on the subject. She is also on the board of advisors to Honeycomb Digital Investments. Her work has been published in Arkansas Law Review, University of Massachusetts Law ReviewMaryland Law ReviewSt. Louis University Law JournalU.M.K.C Law ReviewUniversity of Memphis Law Review and Banking and Financial Law Review.

Goforth is a Distinguished Professor and the Clayton N. Little Professor of Law at the U of A School of Law. She previously held the position of associate dean for academic affairs and Arkansas Bar Foundation Professor of Law.
