What Is The SEC?

The Securities And Exchange Commission or SEC is a government agency in the United States created in 1934 in response to the Wall Street Crash of 1929 which caused The Great Depression. Naturally, the purpose of the SEC is to help prevent a crash like that from happening again

SEC’s Attitudes Towards Cryptocurrency

As you can see, the SEC is headed by five commissioners. One of them holds the role as chairman who acts as the de facto spokesperson for the SEC among other things

The SEC’s current commissioners are Caroline Crenshaw, Allison Lee, Elad Roisman, Hester Pierce, and Gary Gensler who is the SEC’s chairman

Of the five, only Elad, Hester, and Gary have commented about cryptocurrency. Both Elad and Hester have favorable views of the industry

Gary Gensler’s Crypto Background

In contrast to his commissioner compatriots, Gary is an investment banker by trade and spent half of his 40-year career working for Goldman Sachs

Gary has spent the other half of his career working in high positions at various government departments including the US Department of the treasury and the commodities and futures trading commission

Gary taught at MIT was about cryptocurrency and blockchain in the fall of 2018, and you can watch the whole course for free right here on YouTube

Gary Gensler’s Recent Crypto Comments

In an online event hosted by the Aspen Security Forum, Gary noted that most cryptocurrencies need to be regulated, and paid specific attention to stablecoins and DeFi

Which Cryptocurrencies Will The SEC Target And When?

The good news is it’s unlikely that the SEC will clamp down too hard on cryptocurrency any time soon. This will change when politicians return from their recess in mid-September

It looks like the SEC will target any cryptocurrencies and projects that compete with banks. This means DeFi, crypto CeFi, stablecoins, and more

SEC Controlled By Banks?

As it so happens, former SEC chairman Jay Clayton also spent decades hanging out on Wall Street where he advised some of the biggest banks, primarily Goldman Sachs

Not only that, but Jay’s wife served as the Vice President of Goldman Sachs for over 17 years. She quit her job shortly before Jay became the chair of the SEC to reduce the risk of raised eyebrows

If you look into the SEC’s history, you’ll find that they have had a very close relationship with Wall Street and have broken the law on many occasions to protect the big banks they are supposed to regulate
