Those working for or advising cryptocurrency firms or investment funds include three former chairs of the Securities and Exchange Commission, three former chairs of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, three former U.S. senators, and at least one former White House chief of staff, former Treasury secretary and former chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
The Tech Transparency Project, a watchdog group, has identified more than 200 former staffers of federal agencies, congressional offices and national political campaigns who have worked in crypto. They’ve gone to companies such as Coinbase, Circle and FTX, venture-capital funds such as Andreessen Horowitz, law firms representing cryptocurrency clients, and crypto-focused trade associations.
