Bipartisan Senators Propose Regulatory Overhaul of Crypto Markets

On June 7, 2022, Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) unveiled their long-awaited bipartisan framework to overhaul the regulation of cryptocurrencies and digital assets. The “Responsible Financial Innovation Act,” seeks to provide certainty and clarity to the digital asset and blockchain industries, along with the agencies governing these industries. The proposed legislation, which has been in development since March 2022, would define most digital assets, including bitcoin and ether, as commodities, enact rules governing stablecoins, and provide the CFTC with exclusive jurisdiction over digital asset spot markets.

What does crypto mean to you and what drew you to it? Crypto means transformation and evolution of the financial sector. As a professional who has spent a significant portion of her career ushering in financial sector transformation my ah-ha moment happened when I began to see the broader impacts of the industry as a first wave of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.  In my previous roles, I have supported countries in transitioning towards free-market economies or in diversifying their economies away from petrochemical industry reliance or in advancing transparency and accountability post-Arab Spring.

Self-regulatory organizations growing alongside new US crypto regulation – COINTELEGRAPH

SROs can eventually provide the “connective tissue” between the crypto industry and U.S. government as regulatory infrastructure forms. Federal regulation is necessary but not sufficient, Kusz said. Rather, a holistic approach to a regulatory framework is needed. “Regulatory bodies need to move away from an adversarial role toward community management to help shape an ecosystem that works,” she said. “I am not fearful” about regulation, she continued, “but optimistic. […] It will take multiple organizations to steward the industry and bring forward innovation. It’s not competitive.” Read Full Article Here

Balancing act: A report into the future of US crypto regulation – Currency.com

The need for new laws governing crypto is gaining support, amid confusion and uncertainty. With Republican-led proposals on one side and President Joe Biden’s working group and executive orders on the other, the importance of clear US crypto regulation is clearly being felt on both sides of the US political scene, albeit from different perspectives.
