संघीय निक्षेप बीमा निगम के पूर्व अध्यक्ष (एफडीआईसी), जो अमेरिकी में बैंक जमा का बीमा, का कहना है कि cryptocurrencies गैरकानूनी घोषित नहीं किया जाना चाहिए.
According to a new interview published by Barron’s, शीला बेयर ने सुझाव दिया कि Bitcoin और अन्य cryptos एक कमी है, जबकि “intrinsic value,” so do currencies such as the U.S. डॉलर.
“I don’t think we should ban it – the green bills in your pocket don’t have an intrinsic value, either,” she was quoted as saying.
The comments from Bair – who led the government corporation between 2006 तथा 2011 – are notable, given the growing scrutiny being applied to the market from a range of regulators worldwide. Bair, who has opined about cryptocurrency regulation in the past, is also a member of blockchain startup Paxos’ board of directors.
Indeed, she suggested that as far as the price of cryptocurrencies is concerned, the market itself is best equipped to ascertain some kind of value.
“Let the market figure out what it’s worth,” she told the publication. “That is what it is doing now.”
ने कहा कि, Bair didn’t say that regulators should take an entirely hands-off approach. Officials, she indicated, should push for “good disclosure, education, warding off fraud, and making sure it is not being used for illicit activities.”
In the U.S. itself, the Trump administration is taking an increasingly proactive tack in this area, as evidenced by recent comments from officials like Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein तथा यू.एस. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, among others.
During her interview, Bair also had some words of wisdom for those looking to potentially invest in cryptocurrencies, telling the publication:
“Don’t put any money into bitcoin that you can’t afford to lose.”
