Grayscale’s Stance on the Crypto Space
The CEO, Micheal Sonnenshein, said Grayscale would continue to monitor developments surrounding crypto acts. “We anticipate 2023 will be an active year for crypto legislation,” he commented. “We are fortunate that crypto is a non-partisan issue, and we look forward to continuing to build crypto allies in Congress.”
Some legislative acts may determine the future of digital assets. They include the Digital Commodities Consumer Protection Act and the Responsible Financial Innovation Act.
Recall that the Digital Commodities Consumer Protection Act was proposed. Once passed, it will confer commodity status on Bitcoin and Ethereum. Also, both digital assets would be under the Commodity and Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) jurisdiction.
Another work of legislation awaiting passage is the Responsible Financial Innovation Act. The bill would expand the jurisdiction of the Commodity and Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and cover stablecoins.
Sonnenshein said he would be monitoring them and any other potential regulations.
The Grayscale investment legal battle with the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) is on the sideline. Grayscale sued SEC for denying the proposal to convert Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) into an ETF.
Amidst this lawsuit with the SEC, Grayscale Investments conducted the survey.
The survey highlights that 37% of Americans are interested in owning a digital asset.
Also, the coming year will be filled with several legislations on digital assets. Therefore, the Biden Government has set the ball rolling and is expected to develop robust regulations.
