US Senator Raises Concerns Regarding Stablecoins

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), chair of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban, announced Tuesday that he has sent letters to a number of crypto exchanges and stablecoin issuers.

Among the recipients of his letters are Coinbase, Gemini, Paxos, Trusttoken, Binance.us, Centre, and Tether.

The senator asked these crypto companies how they “are protecting consumers and investors amid the risks highlighted in the recent report by the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets.”

The announcement adds: “Senator Brown emphasized the difficulties consumers and investors may face in understanding how stablecoins work and their potential risks, citing the complicated terms and conditions that many companies hide in the fine print.” The senator wrote in one of his letters:

I have significant concerns with the non-standardized terms applicable to redemption of particular stablecoins, how those terms differ from traditional assets, and how those terms may not be consistent across digital asset trading platforms.

The senator asserted that “the purchase of stablecoins through a trading platform may not provide customers with the same rights and entitlements as a direct purchase from an issuer.”

Furthermore, he noted: “Customers may have different rights based on the amount of stablecoins owned or transacted.” Senator Brown also asked six more questions in his letters which can be found here.

Although the issuance of 1 billion is not much, so far it feels like it is not much different from similar projects.

Bitcoin continues to struggle below $58,000 as the last attempts to conquer that level failed. At the same time, some altcoins have produced more significant gains, including ETH, which came just inches away from a new ATH.
