- Rostin Behnam, CFTC chairman, said he would keep regulating non-security tokens.
- CFTC said it could fix regulatory issues but relied on Congress to pass legislation.
- Bankruptcies, failures, and runs to justify CFTC regulation of cryptocurrencies.
The chairman of the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission, or CFTC, Rostin Behnam, stated that he would continue efforts to regulate non-security tokens.
In statements presented for an American Bar Association event, Behnam cited bankruptcies, failures, and runs as justification for Congress to provide the CFTC authority to regulate cryptocurrencies.
Rostin Behnam stated:
Regulation is necessary to protect customers and to prevent failures which cannot predictably be contained within any boundaries across the domestic and global financial markets. Regardless of whether one or many occur in 2023 or 2033, we must act. There is a new Congress, and I will continue to engage and provide technical assistance to draft legislation, as requested.
Furthermore, Chair of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) stated that the commission was well-positioned to remedy any regulatory deficiencies but deferred to U.S. lawmakers to pass legislation.
