Ripple Proposes Its Own Cryptocurrency Regulations

Ripple, while devising the relatively stretchy regulations for overseas, has been persuading the U.S. officials to incorporate additional clarity in the local crypto sector as well. Presently, the blockchain firm (which is based in San Francisco) has taken a move ahead and presented its proposal regarding crypto regulations.

The proposal

Ripple focused on the necessity of public-private partnership in the upcoming regulation for crypto. Specifically, Ripple referred to the legislation’s three sections known as the proposed SCA (Securities Clarity Act), the remaining Eliminate Barriers to Innovation Act, and the projected DECA (Digital Commodity Exchange Act). The company asserted that the investors would be adequately protected by the respected bill, while the sections thereof would additionally clarify where the CFTC and the SEC could implement their authority.

On the framework’s elimination, Ripple’s vision declaration state that the uncertainty presently existing in the regulatory landscape of the United States depresses innovation as well as could become the basis for a brain drain regarding the blockchain and crypto space. It further mentioned the provision of benefits and advancement as well as the implementation of a transparent and reliable regulatory framework regarding cryptocurrencies. The company considers the encouragement of innovation sandboxes.

The implications of the new act and the crypto regulators

There is a big confusion in the mind of several stakeholders across the space regarding the regulators and their premises for regulation, and frustration has been expressed over this issue by them as well as even by the senators. Indeed, before the proposal of Ripple, the Wild West contrast of Gensler has been criticized by Brian Quintenz (the former Commissioner of CFTC) as he stated that it disregarded the point that an anti-manipulation and anti-fraud authority has been secured by the CFTC over that field. And federal regulator comes into the scene  to tackle the things related to the enforcement. It is worth mentioning that CFTC, industry representatives, and the SEC are categorized as a collaborative working team by Ripple under the Eliminate Barriers to Innovation Act.

In the meantime, the blockchain firm discussed the SCA’s latest definition called ‘investment contract asset’ to deal with such commodities and digital tokens. Afterward, Ripple considered that the proposed act would assist in defining the exchanges of digital commodities along with giving adequate authority to the CFTC to control them.
