There are significant regulatory gaps between the SEC and CFTC that the bill aims to fix. It’s clear that SEC Chair Gary Gensler’s regulation by enforcement is not working. His open hostility to #crypto is far out of step with other regulators in the Biden Administration. 🧵

@BrendanPedersen A big win for our efforts to avoid making digital assets a partisan political football. I’m going to keep working in a bipartisan way to pass legislation to protect consumers and provide meaningful regulation for the industry.

@CaitlinLong_ We’ll see a larger group of Democrats supporting digital assets for future votes. A CRA is tough for Dems when it’s a Dem administration. We’ll see larger numbers for future votes in this Congress. As Dems we should support regulation for #crypto to promote innovation in the US.

@AlexanderGrieve As the Democratic lead for the SAB 121 CRA I can confirm there’s a larger group of House Democrats in support of regulating/supporting crypto innovation. It’s not easy for Dems to oppose a Democratic administration - though many privately agreed the SEC was wrong on this.

Well regulated US banks should be able to take custody of #Bitcoin and other digital assets for @SECGov approved crypto ETFs. Having one non-bank taking custody of all of these assets poses a serious concentration of risk problem.
