Under the Biden Administration, multiple government agencies have made significant efforts towards regulating recent developments in digital assets (often known as cryptocurrency) and related activity in decentralized finance.

This digital asset explosion doesn’t clearly correlate to existing regulations, and the government is trying to catch up to developments in the private sector. Federal agencies with significant activity in this area include the SEC, CFTC, OCC, FDIC, FRB, DOJ. As examples, the SEC and CFTC have each brought recent enforcement actions against digital assets and against digital asset exchanges; The President’s Working Group on Financial Markets provided a report on Stablecoins; the three banking agencies have explained that they intend to continue their “crypto sprint” and provide a united regulatory approach towards financial institutions, and the DOJ has created a National Cryptocurrency Enforcement team.
