U.S. Senate’s Warren Calls for Crackdown on ‘Sham’ Crypto Audits

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and another prominent colleague urged the U.S. auditing watchdog to take action against “sham audits” of crypto companies, citing the contribution of such audits to the recent stresses in the U.S. banking system.

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), which is authorized and overseen by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and funded by audited public companies, acknowledged the potential problem with crypto auditing to the lawmakers, including Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), chair of the Senate Finance Committee.
