🤩 The US Cryptocurrency Conundrum: Regulating in Chaos 😱

Cardano Founder Criticizes US Regulators for Alienating Crypto Sector

US regulators alienating crypto sector, says Cardano founder.

Crypto enthusiasts and investors, brace yourselves – it seems the United States is playing a dangerous game of alienating the big players in the digital asset industry. According to Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, the US regulators’ haphazard approach to cryptocurrencies is a recipe for disaster. In an exclusive interview with Cointelegraph, Hoskinson expressed his concerns about the lack of clarity and consistency in the US regulatory landscape.

👉 “When you look at some of the US regulators, they’ve done a really good job of alienating most of the industry,” Hoskinson quipped, satirically raising his eyebrows in disbelief. He explained that the lack of clear guidelines and the inconsistent application of decentralization standards by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have left everyone scratching their heads.

Hoskinson took a cheeky jab at the SEC, pointing out the confounding contradiction between Cardano’s compliance and Ripple’s ongoing legal battle. “Cardano, mind you, didn’t even have an ICO! We sold our ADA vouchers in Japan! But apparently, that’s under US jurisdiction,” he exclaimed, rolling his eyes dramatically. “And let’s not forget the recent court ruling on Ripple. It seems like they’re playing a bizarre game of ‘guess-the-ruling’ here!”

But wait, there’s more! Hoskinson highlighted the labeling inconsistency among cryptocurrencies. “Ethereum conducted an ICO without implementing any Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) checks, and Bitcoin was labeled a non-security for some reason,” he quipped, raising an eyebrow and putting on an innocent face. It’s a puzzling situation indeed!

On November 20th, the SEC filed a complaint alleging that crypto exchange Kraken commingled customer funds and failed to register with the regulator. The complaint listed 16 cryptocurrencies, including ADA, as securities. However, Hoskinson argued that the registration process with the SEC lacks clarity and feasibility. He wondered aloud, “How can you possibly do KYC and AML on every single person in a decentralized protocol? It’s like trying to tame a wild unicorn!”

So, what does Hoskinson want from regulators? He believes it’s high time for clear and unambiguous policies. He emphasized the need for open communication between the crypto industry, regulators, and legislators. “We need to bring everyone to the table and work together to resolve these issues. And, if necessary, update laws to embrace and reflect emerging technologies,” he explained, confidently pointing his finger at the future.

But fear not, fellow crypto enthusiasts, Hoskinson has hope that change is on the horizon. He predicts that a new law will be passed – something like the “Financial Innovation Act” – to remove the ambiguity surrounding crypto regulations. And with a bit of luck, a harmonious collaboration between the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the SEC will bring clarity to this chaotic crypto conundrum.

So hold tight, my friends, as we navigate this rollercoaster ride together. Cryptocurrencies may be volatile, but the twists and turns of regulatory insecurity are shaping up to be quite the thrilling adventure. Buckle up, take a deep breath, and let’s enjoy the unpredictable journey ahead!
