Anchorage Digital Names SEC Veteran TuongVy Le as General Counsel

Since Anchorage Digital was founded in 2017, we have continuously set out to meet the highest standards in legal and regulatory compliance. We take our responsibilities as the first and only crypto-native company to secure a federal bank charter from the OCC seriously, and have invested in hiring the best legal and compliance talent to keep pace with growing institutional demand in an evolving regulatory landscape.

Today, Anchorage Digital is proud to build on the momentum by announcing the addition of SEC veteran TuongVy Le as our new General Counsel.

A former senior lawyer with the SEC, Vy comes to Anchorage Digital with over 15 years of experience as a financial regulatory lawyer, with a proven track record in both the traditional finance and crypto industries. Most recently, she served as Partner and Head of Regulatory and Policy for Bain Capital Crypto, and as Deputy General Counsel and Compliance Officer at Worldcoin. 

Prior to that, Vy spent almost six years with the SEC, first as Senior Counsel in the Division of Enforcement and, later, as Chief Counsel in the Office of Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs. At the SEC, Vy handled some of the Commission’s earliest crypto-related investigations, and engaged with Congress, the Treasury Department, and other federal and state agencies on digital asset regulation and capital markets policy. A graduate of Yale Law School, Vy began her legal career advising traditional financial institutions and public companies at a major international law firm.

“At Anchorage Digital, since our founding, we have committed to being a regulatory pioneer to best meet the needs of institutions in crypto. With a unique blend of legal, regulatory, and policy experience, Vy is the seasoned legal leader that Anchorage Digital needs to support us in our next phase of growth.” 

— Nathan McCauley, Co-Founder and CEO of Anchorage Digital

“Anchorage Digital is a recognized leader in advancing a safe, secure, and regulated crypto ecosystem. Joining Anchorage Digital is not only a chance to lead a top-tier legal and policy team, but to help shape the future of digital asset regulation and support the industry at large. I look forward to helping Anchorage Digital meet the rising institutional demand for crypto in a safe and compliant manner, as we expand our product offerings and enter new markets. Maintaining the trust that our clients have placed in us will be my top priority.”

— TuongVy Le, General Counsel at Anchorage Digital

Bringing a distinct combination of government and private-sector experience in crypto, Vy will lead our legal and policy team as we continue to scale our business and build partnerships with some of the biggest names in traditional and decentralized finance. She will also serve as a key liaison between Anchorage Digital and state, federal, and international regulators and lawmakers as we continue to advance digital asset regulation and compliance both in the United States and globally.
