Hester Peirce, who has recently published a statement together with Commissioner Elad Roisman against the way the agency is regulating cryptocurrencies, has delivered her harshest assessment yet at an interview with Yahoo Finance.
“It is disconcerting to me that for three years now I’ve been asking for regulatory clarity, and we can’t seem to provide any. I think this is really becoming a huge barrier to this industry being able to develop in a way that’s safe, but also in a way that allows innovation to happen. And it’s a real shame to me that we are not just taking up the mantle as regulators to develop a regulatory framework.”
