FTX collapse could speed up long-overdue crypto regulation

Trendspotting: After the spectacular collapse of FTX and rising fears that consumers aren’t being protected adequately, pressure is building on financial services watchdogs to better regulate the cryptocurrency industry.

The context:

Regulation roundup: More oversight is coming in major markets. And FTX’s implosion—along with other crypto meltdowns this year, such as stablecoin TerraUSD—could bring new regulation sooner.

  • The EU planned to pass robust crypto regulations in its Markets in Crypto Assets (MiCA) legislation before 2023. The new legislation would replace a patchwork of national rules with one framework covering various countries for the first time. But a vote on the new rules has reportedly been delayed until February, per CoinDesk.
  • In the UK, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) currently only oversees companies’ approach to anti-money laundering. But an incoming Financial Services and Markets Bill is passing through Parliament and would give greater oversight of the crypto sector.
  • The US is further behind on creating concrete rules. Various government agencies have skirted around formal regulations. And there isn’t even agreement on whether the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) should be in charge of oversight.

The big takeaway: Crypto regulation in most markets has been painfully slow to materialize. But the latest and biggest crypto meltdown of 2022 may shock policymakers into action.

Consumers are undeniably unprotected and at risk under the current regulatory framework in most markets. But disagreements remain in the US as to whether oversight should focus on encouraging innovation or on consumer protection. And the complexity of regulating cryptos is holding back fresh legislation in Europe.

Regulators’ reluctance to set rules for crypto has stunted digital asset market growth. New legislation can help protect consumers, bring cryptos into the mainstream, and prevent future crises.
