The Crypto Market Integrity Coalition (CMIC), an industry-defining alliance founded by Solidus Labs made up of 42 leading crypto firms today launched CMIC Academy as a first-of-its-kind training program developed through an unprecedented collaborative effort by the wider crypto ecosystem.
The publicly available training program covers the most pertinent topics every crypto stakeholder should know and spans four key learning modules, setting the bar for market integrity education among crypto users, investors, regulators, and compliance professionals
Covering crypto and DeFi basics, market structure, risk mitigation concepts and tools, and regulatory considerations, the CMIC Academy course is delivered by leading practitioners from an array of crypto and DeFi firms, as well as former regulators. “CMIC Academy is made by the crypto industry, for the crypto industry, as well as for regulators and the broad public looking to engage with digital assets safely, constructively, and responsibly. Everyone who engages with this content can develop a strong foundation in this fast-evolving space,” said Kathy Kraninger, VP of Regulatory Affairs at Solidus Labs.
Hedi Navazan, Crystal Blockchain Head of Regulatory Affairs and Nicholas Smart, Crystal Blockchain Director of Intelligence, share their expertise in this program.
“I’m delighted to bring my regulatory expertise to the table at CMIC Academy. Forums like the CMIC Academy help forge better crypto market integrity initiatives and ultimately help regulate the crypto space,” said Hedi Navazan, Head of Regulatory Affairs at Crystal Blockchain.
Nicholas Smart, Crystal Blockchain’s Director of Intelligence, added, “I want to make crypto assets succeed, and the best way to do that is to make things safer for businesses and users. CMIC Academy will be an excellent platform for making that happen, and I am glad to help develop and deliver content from the blockchain intelligence perspective.”
Crystal Blockchain proudly partnered with CMIC in September 2022. CMIC, initially launched in February 2022 by 17 co-founding exchanges, firms, and industry associations and now counts 43 signatories, gives a unified voice to the crypto industry’s commitment to continually improving market integrity and collaboration with regulators. The coalition defines itself as a community of interest and takes on initiatives that promote market integrity.
CMIC Academy answers the global call from regulators and the public for more training and educational resources to fill knowledge gaps regarding the quickly evolving digital asset industry. The program’s syllabus includes more than 30 online courses covering critical topics from the basics of digital assets to regulatory challenges and crypto-specific risks and manipulation typologies. Upon completing the entire training program and a set of quizzes, users will receive a POAP (Proof of Attendance Protocol) NFT.
