Opinion | Blockchain supports cryptocurrency regulation

We do not excuse the failure of corporate governance, personal morality, and lack of transparent and ethical business practices that defined the collapse of the cryptocurrency exchange FTX, but one man’s alleged misdeeds shouldn’t serve as an indictment of an entire industry. Many in the crypto industry have called for new legislation to define the rules that the editorial suggested are necessary, while the heads of our regulatory agencies pursue enforcement actions that both punish attempts to develop new financial products and do very little, if anything, to protect consumers from illicit schemes and bad actors.
