    Clayton tantalizes XRP Army with suggestion of ‘fresh look’ at international payments

    With all eyes on Zuck, Fintech Week shows industry’s maturity and diversity

    WASHINGTON—Sometimes the best scheduling comes down to luck. Day Three of the four-day conference known as Fintech Week was clearly scheduled to keep attendees in the vicinity through at least Wednesday. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Jay Clayton, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse, and Ethereum co-founder Joe Lubin were all on the scene at the Showroom on 14th St NW. All the better that, by coincidence, the conference locale was just blocks from the high stakes testimony Mark Zuckerberg was delivering at the same time at the Capitol.
