Crypto Regulators In Talks For Plan B Regarding Stablecoin Rules If Congress Fails

Posted by

Digital assets are some of the top concerns outlined by the Financial Stability Oversight Council in its annual report issued earlier today.

The report also highlighted the dangers posed by climate change, meme stocks and vulnerabilities exposed by the failure of Archegos Capital Management.

The council — a panel including all the heads of the U.S. financial agencies — is ramping up again this year after remaining largely dormant during the Trump administration.
