TRM Talks: The CFTC’s Role in Crypto with Commissioner Christy Goldsmith Romero

This week CFTC Commissioner Christy Goldsmith Romero joins Ari on TRM Talks for a discussion of the Commissioner’s journey, the CFTC’s regulation of crypto and the CFTC Technology Advisory Committee’s recent report on DeFi. On the report — which attempted to balance opportunities and risks in the DeFi ecosystem – Commissioner Goldsmith Romero explains:

“When you look at the recommendations [in the TAC DeFi report] it starts with a sort of map out where DeFi is, where does it fall within the existing law? Clearly some of it falls within existing law because the CFTC has brought some enforcement actions. But, what is missing? Where’s the regulatory gap? The benefits and risks are based on how the system is designed.”
