- Heath Tarbert believes that the United States should lead the blockchain space.
- The US should take a more active role in the space, and even take the lead, if possible.
The Chairman of the CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission), Heath Tarbert, is keen for the United States to take a more active role in the cryptocurrency/blockchain space, although he recognizes that the industry lacks clarity.
Tarbet was speaking at a conference on Tuesday, where he expressed his views on the state of the crypto/blockchain industry in the United States. According to him, the US should take a more active role in the space, and even take the lead, if possible.
CFTC Chairman added that the desire to create a stable regulatory landscape came due to the CFTC’s employees’ choice to make ‘forward-looking’ one of the agency’s core values. To achieve the new goals, he did admit that the CFTC is communicating with the US SEC, almost on a daily basis.
