Why the Crypto Industry Believes SEC Regulation by Enforcement Hurts US Consumers – Ep. 378

Marisa Tashman, policy counsel at Blockchain Association, analyzes the US Securities and Exchange Commissions (SEC) decision to name nine tokens as securities and investigate whether Coinbase lists securities.

Show highlights:

  • why the SEC named tokens as securities in an insider trading case where no exchanges or token teams are listed as defendants
  • what happens if the Coinbase insider trading case is settled or goes to court
  • why the SECs actions should be considered regulation by enforcement
  • whether there is any process to force the SEC to reveal its reasoning for calling a token a security
  • why Marisa thinks the SEC is actively harming US investors with its crypto policy
  • how Coinbase is handling the SECs investigation
  • what Marisa thinks of Coinbases listing process
  • why the Cynthia Lummis-led crypto regulatory framework is a good start
  • what Marisa believes will happen in the crypto regulatory landscape in the near future
