U.S. Legal and Regulatory News for Digital Asset Holders
Valerie A. Szczepanik, Capitol Crypto
SEC Senior Advisor for Digital Assets and Innovation Valerie A. Szczepanik, at a Washington, D.C., event hosted by Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp on Capitol Hill, says: “I think a lot of guidance will be given out in speeches and statements because we’re not trying to regulate a situation that’s hypothetical.”
That same day, William Hinman gave his speech declaring ether is not a security. After the SEC sued Ripple in 2020, Hinman and the agency then claimed in court that the speech was his personal opinion and not market guidance.
