Gary Gensler is the chairperson of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Recently, in a new press statement, he has been found urging the digital assets exchanges to register with the US SEC. The SEC boss pleaded to all cryptocurrency exchanges operating under his radar and those within the nation’s shores. According to Gensler, being registered with the US financial regulator, such platforms can ensure the safety of the investments of their investors.
Gary Gensler pleads crypto firms to get registered
Gary Gensler is invoking all the digital assets exchange platforms to register. The assertion is a part of Gensler’s apt statement for the approaching testimonial face-off at the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. Notably, the Committee has been scheduled for September 14, 2021. It is known that the Committee called Gensler’s attention to the heavy complaint of complete oversight levied on the regulator.
US SEC and CFTC are together working to protect investors
The SEC boss believes that registration is the way to protect the hard-earned funds of investors. He further assured that his team and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) are working with great effort to protect the investors. Moreover, in coalition with the government agencies and critical bodies, Gary Gensler hopes to establish a sufficient framework with stringent policies that will supervise the cryptosphere in the United States.
In the press statement, Gensler asked the cryptocurrency platform and projects to come in and talk to them. He also noted that several platforms have dozens or hundreds of tokens listed on them. In contrast, each of such a token’s rightful status depends on its facts and circumstances. The probability is quite remote that, with about 100, or 1000 tokens, any bestowed platform has zero securities.
Can cryptocurrency be a catalyst to change?
In the statement, Gary Gensler has also stressed the need for a check and balance framework. According to the SEC boss, such a framework puts the digital currency firms at ease and checks their excesses. Moreover, he also counsels that if the firms stay under an established framework, then only they will act as a catalyst for change.
SEC sees the scenario as the Wild West
Last month the SEC boss had hoped to implement new changes in the cryptocurrency policies. Such policies will affect token offerings, decentralized finance (DeFi), stablecoins, lending platforms, and exchange-traded funds. Being a lover of negotiation, Gensler solicited cryptocurrency firms to come and talk to them.
Following the scenario, in the cryptosphere, the SEC chair showed concerns by saying that they don’t have enough protection in the cryptosphere. Additionally, he sees the digital assets industry as the Wild West or the old buyer beware world that existed before the securities laws.
