Earlier this year, the SEC issued a bulletin to prevent cryptocurrency trading from not listing security clearances without registering spil a national stock exchange and menacing to pursue platforms that list the securities. unregistered securities.
Registration spil ATS &ndash, a trading podium that is regulated differently from public stock exchanges &ndash, would give the SEC more power to oversee the toneelpodium. This could also make the SEC less inclined to sue the exchange of registration tokens that the agency zometeen considers to be unrecorded securities.
The SEC has stated that it hopes that cryptocurrency exchanges will be registered with the SEC.
However, registration spil an ATS is an arduous process, and Powell said it would only do so if the SEC would provide more clarity about the regulatory status of cryptocurrencies and initial coin tokens (ICO).
Ter any case, however, the comments are noteworthy, particularly given Powell’s position towards regulators that he believes to be hostile to the industry.
Recently, former Attorney Militar of the State of Fresh York, Eric Schneiderman, launched an investigation into cryptocurrency trading, including companies &ndash, such spil kraken &ndash, that do not presently exist te the state. Many exchanges voluntarily complied, but Powell criticized them for “running towards this kleuter of manhandle” and said kraken would not react to the investigation.
Shortly after, Schneiderman wasgoed coerced to resign when four women accused him of physical manhandle, which prompted Powell to supply a punchline during a panel at Overeenstemming.
It felt like a smack, says kraken’s Powell about the investigation of former AG Schneiderman. “But then wij found out that he wasgoed smacking people ter the face.” Oh! # Consensus2018

“The AG has no authority overheen us,” Powell added ter Bloomberg’s vraaggesprek Tuesday. “Two things I truly hate are hellions and hypocrites, and this man is both.”
Straks ter the vraaggesprek, Powell said he foresaw that kraken &ndash, which is presently possessed by the private sector &ndash, would become public ter the future. And when that is the case, he hopes that the company’s deeds will be symbolized.
“If wij could find a way to do that &ndash, to have the company’s stock traded spil a token, I think it would be good,” he said.
