The US perspective: regulating cryptoassets and stablecoins
The majority of individuals who adopt the use of stablecoins do so for its convenience as an intermediary when selling and purchasing different cryptoassets. However, the potential for stablecoins to be used right across the financial infrastructure is growing fast, and its market cap has already passed $150bn. With their practicality growing alongside the thriving cryptoasset industry, mitigating risks associated with the use of both is an urgent requirement. Nellie Liang, under secretary of the US Treasury for domestic finance, joins OMFIF to discuss the next steps for regulating stablecoins and cryptoassets.
