Bill to Shield Crypto Exchanges from SEC Enforcement Actions Proposed
United States Senator Bill Hagerty put forward the Digital Trading Clarity Act of 2022, a legislation to mitigate certain enforcement actions of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) against cryptocurrency exchanges.
The bill seeks to clarify regulations about the classification of digital assets and related liabilities under existing securities laws.
According to Sen. Hagerty, ambiguities in regulation will fend off investments and hinder job opportunities. However, the senator added that when the legislation is passed, it will give crypto businesses the certainty they need and boost the growth and liquidity of the cryptocurrency markets in the United States.
