Paul Grewal, the Chief Legal Officer of Coinbase has mentioned in a published article that “Crypto is solving real-world problems and we need a clear path forward to protect responsible innovation.”
He also opined that it is essential for Congress to establish clear boundaries regarding the regulation of digital assets and the underlying technology.
These boundaries should determine when digital assets should be treated as commodities, when they should be considered securities, and when certain financial regulations may not be applicable or would lack logical reasoning.
