TRM Talks Biden's Executive Order on Crypto: A Discussion With Policy Experts
March 10, 2022
Yesterday, President Biden signed a long-awaited crypto executive order on “Ensuring Responsible Innovation in Digital Assets (Order),” and issued this fact sheet. While regulatory agencies have been providing crypto-related guidance and taking enforcement actions for years, the White House, with this executive order, intends to outline “the first ever, whole-of-government approach to addressing the risks and harnessing the potential benefits of digital assets and their underlying technology.” The Order sets forth a national policy for cryptocurrency across “six key priorities: consumer and investor protection; financial stability; illicit finance; U.S. leadership in the global financial system and economic competitiveness; financial inclusion; and responsible innovation.” Check out TRM’s analysis of the EO.
In the wake of the executive order, TRM Talks sat down with three experts - Carole House, Director of Cyber Security and Digital Innovation at the White House National Security Council, Teana Baker-Taylor Chief Policy Officer for the Chamber of Digital Commerce and Dante Disparte, Chief Strategy Officer and Head of Global Policy for Circle - to discuss the Order, the deliberations behind it and what it means for the crypto-industry and beyond.
