Global cryptocurrency regulations

The need for crypto laws arose after a down market and the collapse of Terra UST, which caused investors to lose a massive amount of their investments. As a result, China openly prohibited the use of cryptocurrencies, while Russia prohibited its use as a payment alternative.

The US remained hesitant to finalise the proposed crypto regulations until Biden requested the crypto regulation draft from the US SEC authority. The regulation draft is submitted for review and is anticipated to be deployed shortly.

As the deadline for implementing crypto laws approaches, the SEC has geared itself for the duties that will fall on its shoulders soon. US SEC chairman spoke to Yahoo Finance about the details of their forthcoming duties once the laws are implemented.

US SEC and cryptocurrency regulation

Gensler stated that the new cryptocurrency regulation would assist investors and customers by protecting them from any difficulties caused by service providers. Their primary focus areas, according to Gensler, will be exchanges, brokerage, and loans. He stated that they are contacting stakeholders to notify them of their needs.

While stating that they are open to conversations and discussions, he also invited exchangers, lenders, and other dealers to come and speak with them.

He noted that Congress had given the SEC authority to change some laws to better safeguard investors, stating:

“We do have robust authorities from Congress also to use our exemptive authorities that we can tailor investor protection.”

They even have the authority, he claims, to request tokens for disclosures. He stated that the public has the right to comprehensive and honest disclosures, which would serve as their primary safeguard.

Because the SEC is obliged to cover tokens, stablecoins, and volatile coins, they will also have the power to consult with banking authorities and the CFTC. He has emphasised that Bitcoin is not a security coin and that the CFTC would decide the remainder of the coins and tokens status. He has also cautioned that many crypto coins will fail, so investors should exercise caution.
