The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will talk about blockchain in October. The discussion will take actually take place on October 12. No further details are available at the moment.
The SEC is not the only group to discuss blockchain. Other government entities have examined the topic as well including the US Treasury Department and the CFTC.
A discussion does not necessarily imply action, certainly not immediate action. But chances are at some point, the SEC will issue regs involving blockchain. The meeting will be available on the SEC website, live, for those can’t come.
