美国参议院银行委员会最资深的共和党人Pat Toomey要求立法提案支持加密货币创新,区块链和保护加密货币投资者。与此同时,民主党国会议员达伦·索托就类似议题提出了两项两党议案。


“监管者和立法者不应试图忽视或抑制加密货币和相关技术,他们需要认识到,开放的公共网络是存在的。我们的法律法规必须适应这些发展。”


“加密货币和区块链技术不仅可能像互联网一样具有革命性,它们也有潜力为个人建立财富和财务独立,这些个人被授权直接参与彼此的金融交易,而无需通常代价高昂的中间人。”


提案将于9月27日提交。

CFTC在监管虚拟货币方面的作用


与此同时,国会议员达伦·索托公布了两项两党法案。其中一项要求商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)探究加密货币市场的价格操纵是如何发生的。它还要求CFTC澄清其在市场监督和执行方面的监管权限。


上周,CFTC专员Dawn Stump澄清说,CFTC只对衍生品市场有监管权。因此,对于被视为商品的数字资产,如比特币和可能的以太坊,商品期货交易委员会缺乏监管权力,包括监督。然而,它对存在价格操纵或欺诈的基础现金市场有执行权力,因为这会影响衍生品。


第二份索托法案是《美国宪法》《2021年虚拟货币市场和监管竞争力法案》(Virtual Currency Market and Regulatory Competitiveness Act of 2021)要求商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)与美国证券交易委员会(SEC)和其他机构一起探索美国立法如何在新兴加密货币领域提供清晰度并鼓励创新。


上月底,拜尔议员提出了迄今为止最全面的法案之一,长达58页的《数字资产市场结构和投资者保护法案》(Digital Asset Market Structure and Investor Protection Act)。

 

Pat Toomey, the most senior Republican on the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, has requested legislative proposals to support cryptocurrency innovation, blockchain and protect crypto investors. At the same time, Democrat Congressman Darren Soto has introduced two bipartisan bills on similar topics.

“Rather than trying to ignore or suppress cryptocurrency and related technologies, regulators and legislators alike need to recognize that open, public networks are here to stay. Our laws and regulations must adapt to these developments,” said Senator Toomey. 

“Not only might cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies be as revolutionary as the internet, they also have the potential to build wealth and financial independence for individuals who are empowered to engage in financial transactions directly with each other, free from oft-costly middlemen.”

Proposals are requested by September 27.

CFTC’s role in regulating virtual currency

Meanwhile, Congressman Darren Soto published two bipartisan bills. One asks the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to explore how price manipulation happens in cryptocurrency markets. It also asks the CFTC to clarify the extent to which it has regulatory authority over market surveillance and enforcement.

Last week, CFTC Commissioner Dawn Stump clarified that the CFTC only has regulatory authority over derivatives markets. Hence, for digital assets that are considered commodities – such as Bitcoin and possibly Ethereum – the CFTC lacks regulatory authority, including oversight. However, it does have enforcement authority for the underlying cash markets where there’s price manipulation or fraud because that impacts derivatives.

The second Soto bill, the “U.S. Virtual Currency 5 Market and Regulatory Competitiveness Act of 2021”, asks for the CFTC in conjunction with the SEC and other agencies to explore how U.S. legislation can provide clarity and encourage innovation in the emerging cryptocurrency sector.

At the end of last month, Congressman Beyer introduced one of the most comprehensive bills to date, a 58-page “Digital Asset Market Structure and Investor Protection Act”.
