- US crypto crackdown could benefit Hong Kong
- Shift in crypto “center of gravity”
- Hong Kong embraces favorable regulations
Ambre Soubiran, CEO of Paris-based institutional crypto market data provider Kaiko, recently spoke with the Wall Street Journal, suggesting that the United States’ intensified crackdown on cryptocurrency could inadvertently aid Hong Kong in achieving its goal of becoming a leading crypto hub.
Soubiran stated that the increasing stringency of US crypto regulations, coupled with Hong Kong’s more favorable approach, will likely shift the “center of gravity” for crypto asset trading and investment towards Hong Kong.
Despite the US’s long-standing position as a frontrunner in the crypto sector, the government’s recent adoption of a “regulation by enforcement” approach has raised concerns among some industry insiders. They predict that companies, developers, and investors may seek friendlier environments elsewhere as a result of this mounting pressure.
In contrast to the US’s aggressive stance on crypto since the FTX collapse in November – with senators like Elizabeth Warren advocating for the creation of an “anti-crypto army” – Hong Kong has been moving in the opposite direction. The territory’s more supportive regulatory approach could draw in those seeking a more welcoming environment for their crypto ventures, ultimately solidifying Hong Kong’s status as a premier crypto hub.
In other news, Elon Musk and his legal team have urged a U.S. judge to reject the unprecedented $258 billion lawsuit filed by investors who allege the Tesla CEO engaged in a pyramid scheme to promote the cryptocurrency Dogecoin.
