Global DCA Request to US SEC for Additional Response Time – Amendments to Exchange Act Rule 3b-16 Regarding the Definition of “Exchange”

“Given the brevity of time provided for response (30 days) as well as the importance of this issue, we are deeply concerned that the public comments on the Proposed Rule will lack the number, depth and detail necessary for a fair evaluation of the Proposed Rule. Additionally, such a brief timeline hampers smaller and mid-size firms even more as they lack the critical resources to be able to review and determine the impact on their businesses necessary to respond in any meaningful way. Furthermore, we worry that a rush to judgment would negatively impact the overall effectiveness of a final rule and create unintended consequences damaging to the interests of the United States.” – Global DCA.

Global DCA Comment Letter to FASB on Treatment of Digital Assets under US GAAP

“Under the conceptual framework for financial reporting, the fundamental quantitative characteristics that make accounting information useful are relevance and faithful representation.  Accounting information is relevant if it can make a difference in a decision.  Faithful representation exists when there is an agreement between accounting information and the economic events that the accounting information purports to represent. It is difficult to conclude that the current accounting standards for digital assets fundamentally meet the objective of relevance and faithful representation for this asset class. Fair value accounting through profit and loss supports the accounting conceptual framework because digital assets are sensitive to market risk and experience market volatility.  Fair value accounting is also more relevant, provides more useful information for readers and enhances comparability across entities and industries.” – Global DCA.   Click to Read Response Letter

Global DCA Comment Letter to Bank for International Settlement on “Prudential Treatment of Cryptoasset Exposures”

“The Committee notes that for cryptoassets that confer direct claims on a pool of traditional assets held in a bankruptcy remote vehicle, a banking institution could set the credit risk exposure of bankruptcy remote assets of the redeemer to zero only if an institution has obtained a legal opinion for all laws relevant to involved parties, including the redeemer, the special purpose vehicle (SPV) and custodian, affirming that relevant courts would recognize underlying assets held in a bankruptcy remote manner as those of the cryptoasset holder. It is difficult to see how a banking institution would be able to meet that burden. It may be more constructive if the Committee were to consider proposing alternative suggestions, that could potentially offer a different standard for credit risk exposure of cryptoassets conferring direct claims on traditional assets held in a bankruptcy remote vehicle.” – Global DCA.
