The head of the company believes that this is a stupid idea, and there is no point in “creating new names in Washington’s alphabet soup”
Robinhood’s chief attorney Dan Gallagher opposes the creation of a new digital asset regulator. He voiced this position at the Georgetown University Financial Markets conference 20 November. The businessman did not choose his words and dubbed this idea “just stupid.”
Recall that Robinhood is a popular exchange app without commission, and Coinbase is their main competitor. It was Coinbase that proposed the creation of a new regulator in October. This happened after the SEC threatened the exchange with legal action.
Gallagher said at the conference that it makes no sense “to create new names in the alphabet soup of Washington.” The lawyer refers to the fact that in the United States there are already regulators with such powers – the same SEC or CFTC. Therefore, the proposal for a new office is “one of the stupidest ideas in this area.”
