Notable statements

Rep. Jake Auchincloss has 2 statement(s) about crypto.

"The best thing Congress can do to promote Web3 is to designate a primary regulator to audit stablecoins. Thread ⬇️ This primary crypto regulator should be tech & market-structure neutral, and eventually fulfill 3 mandates: 1. Compel disclosure and transparency 2. Prevent fraud & abuse 3. Promote the efficiency and resilience of the market This regulator should also work with a self-regulatory organization, as a counterpart in the private sector, to establish a rule book for: ✅ Spot & derivatives listings ✅ Custody requirements ✅ Token issuance ✅ Asset servicing, amongst other categories. The current enforcement-based regulatory system, in which entrepreneurs must negotiate with the SEC or the CFTC on a one-off basis, is not fair, efficient, or conducive to US-based innovation. Congress must provide clarity and predictability by statute, and I stand ready to work with both my Democratic and Republican colleagues to provide that. The rules of the road for Web3 can be a bipartisan initiative."
