It is a glimpse at the likely and complex battle over the legal and regulatory framework surrounding cryptocurrencies. He is the former chairman of the United Nations. It is S. Two important points of interest are involved here. Actually, there are two points of interest involved. This week we have another clash between the regulators and the cryptocurrency community with the highest profile company in the space.

 

 

Coinbase and the SEC’s regulatory dispute:

Christopher Giancarlo also weighed in, but without directly criticizing or taking sides in the debate, saying it is a challenge to applyIn testimony before the United NationsThat is S. Gensler warned cryptocurrency exchanges such as Coinbase to register with the regulator last week. Described in response to a hypothetical question that Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts senator. The question concerning Coinbase was answered by Gensler, who said, They have not yet registered with us, even though they already have dozens ofThis is the latest outing in a series of confrontations between the SEC and senior executives at Coinbase over regulatory uncertaintyJust days after a lengthy Twitter thread by Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong and a blog post by Coinbase Chief Legal Officer Paul Grewal, criticizedThe scope of the SEC’s regulatory jurisdiction The heart of the legal dispute between the SEC and Coinbase is regulatory jurisdiction related to the rapidly growingThe debate on cryptocurrencies and related stablecoins has more specifically to do with the legal definition of securities. The statement from Gensler asserts, without giving specifics, that some digital assets and platforms are operating as, or offering securities, which would beThere is more specific authority in areas that are not clear or outside of the SEC’s jurisdiction. For example, issue with the firm’s planned rollout of its coinbase Lend platform has been spotted. Coinbase intends to legally charge the company if it continues with plans to launch the lend. It appears that the Lend program is a security measure. It is based on the USD Coin, which is a cryptocurrency associated with the U. S. I believe it is S. Dollar. Stablecoins refer to cryptocurrencies in relation to the underlying asset. The USDC they hold on Coinbase’s platform will be investing in the program, but rather a USDC they hold in the program. Lend customers should always pay interest regardless of which program they participate in. The principal will secure a third of the customers’ money and the U. S.  Dollars contract will be due upon request. A perceived lack of communication or cooperation is what appears to be causing Coinbase to speak out publicly. Grewal and Armstrong said that despite repeated encouragement for the cryptocurrency industry to come in and talk to usThe SEC told us that they consider Lend to involve a security, but would not say why or how they had reached that conclusion. A healthy regulatory relationship should never leave the industry in that kind of bind without explanation. A good regulation is held by dialogue. Armstrong said on Twitter that if we go to court we may finally get the regulatory clarity the SEC refuses to provide. Regulating by litigation should be the last resort for the SEC, not the first. Several experts have claimed the exchange was riddled with fraud and investor risk. The first is the regulatory issue which we will get to. The other is the public relations game that Coinbase is playing. First, the regulatory issue.  We will get to that eventuallyCoinbase is playing a public relations game. The public relations game is its own beast, and this is not the first time we have dealt with this. The U is dissected by this week’s newsletter.

 

 

Cryptocurrency and the CFTC:

In his testimony last week, he requested more resources to meet the growing number of regulatory projects the SEC faces. In a blog post some days later, Coinbase announced it would not launch the program. While we continue to seek regulatory clarity for the crypto industry, we made the difficult decision not to launch the USDC. Giancarlo, former Chairman of the CFTC, gave his opinion on a wide range of crypto related issues, from central bank digitalThe senior attorney at Willkie Farr & Gallagher is now a senior attorney.  He advocates for the blockchain and cryptocurrency industries. The CFTC found that existing regulations were not applicable to this new innovation, to the crypto itself. It is very important that a 90 year old statute of limitations do not apply to a change that was never contemplated in the first place. Giancarlo said that when he was at the CFTC the securities were more uncertain at Coinbase and SEC. Otherwise, it could put firms in unwitting legal jeopardyIn the issue of jurisdiction, Giancarlo explained that finally, jurisdiction will be picked by the courts. The ‘Crypt’ has been recognized by the Congress in the past few months and has discovered its power and potential. Cryptos and Blockchain offer a chance to modernize financial services and he noted that innovation has been hindered. I believe this innovation is necessary to modernize shortcomings.

I am not really clear to me how effective it is, but absolutely fascinating to watch. It’s the active and the passive. It is genuinely unclear as to its effectiveness, however it is very amusing to watch. The active portion is absorbed by a passive portion that is performed by the passengers. That is not the way to approach regulation. The ability to change from active to passive.
