Coinbase Chief Legal Officer Paul Grewal believes cryptocurrency solves real-world challenges, and a clear path is essential to support innovation. Also, he added that Congress should draw clear boundaries in crypto and the underlying technology.
The boundaries need to clarify when regulators should treat digital currencies as securities or commodities and when crypto regulation would not be applicable. Grewal trusts the new bill is a massive forward step and a thoughtful effort, urging regulators to act on the bill asap.
Moreover, CFTC Chairman Rosting Behnam revealed he would testify on Capitol Hill to share views on the draft crypto bill – released on 2 June.
