Gensler’s comments have been viewed favorably by the cryptocurrency community, particularly in light of his background in digital asset markets and his strong support for the agency’s recent focus on digital assets. Gensler’s warnings and calls for tighter regulation have been met with applause from the wider cryptocurrency community as many see it as a positive step towards protecting depositing and instilling trust in the industry.
