Presidente da SEC dos EUA se preocupa com ‘mistura’ de exchanges de criptomoedas pode colocar em risco os ativos dos clientes

As exchanges de criptoativos não estão colocando barreiras entre as respectivas partes de suas atividades, como serviços de negociação, custódia e marketing, o que poderia levar à “mistura” de suas atividades e colocar em risco os interesses de seus clientes, de acordo com Garry Gensler, presidente da Comissão de Valores Mobiliários dos Estados Unidos (SEC). O funcionário também indicou que sua agência está analisando os laços entre as principais stablecoins e as principais exchanges.

“A criptomoeda tem muitos desses desafios – de plataformas negociando à frente de seus clientes”, disse o chefe do regulador à Bloomberg, alegando que,

“Na verdade, eles estão negociando contra seus clientes com frequência porque estão marcando o mercado contra seus clientes.”

The latest statement comes shortly after the SEC announced it created some 20 additional positions, for a total of 50, within the unit responsible for protecting investors in crypto markets and from cyber-related threats. Called the Crypto Assets and Cyber Unit, the entity was formerly known as the Cyber Unit. Gensler said the expansion would allow the agency to “be better equipped to police wrongdoing in the crypto markets while continuing to identify disclosure and controls issues with respect to cybersecurity”.

The official has established himself as a vocal critic of many segments of the crypto industry. He argues that most digital assets fall under the SEC’s regulatory purview and that crypto trading platforms should register with the agency. With this in mind, the regulator is determined to bolster its enforcement efforts, according to the official.

At the same time, the SEC is closely observing the stablecoin market, as Gensler finds that it is no accident that the three leading stablecoins, Tether, USD Coin (USDC), and Binance USD, have ties to major exchanges.

“I don’t think that’s a coincidence,” the agency’s head said.

Making a reference to anti-money laundering (AML) and know-your-customer (KYC) measures, Gensler also said that each “one of the three big ones were founded by the trading platforms to facilitate trading on those platforms and potentially avoid AML and KYC”.

Gensler’s approach to stablecoins seems to be shared by US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. Speaking at a Senate Banking Committee hearing on Tuesday, she said that stablecoins represented “risks to financial stability” and as such, they should be subject to new regulations.

“We really need a consistent federal framework,” Yellen told senators, as quoted by The Wall Street Journal.

No mês passado, Gensler participou de uma conferência organizada pela Carey Law School da Universidade da Pensilvânia, onde falou sobre o futuro dos ativos digitais em uma apresentação principal. Para alguns observadores da indústria de criptomoedas, o foco crescente do regulador em tais ativos foi em si uma má notícia.

“Algo me diz que assim que a SEC se envolver, podemos dar adeus ao futuro dos ativos digitais”, twittou um usuário.
