美國聯邦存款保險公司(FDIC)前主席 (FDIC), which insures bank deposits in the U.S., says that cryptocurrencies shouldn’t be outlawed.

According to a new interview published by Barron’s, Sheila Bair suggested that while bitcoin and other cryptos lack anintrinsic value,” so do currencies such as the U.S. 美元.

I don’t think we should ban itthe green bills in your pocket don’t have an intrinsic value, either,” she was quoted as saying.

The comments from Bairwho led the government corporation between 2006 和 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 Paxosboard of directors.

確實, 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.

這就是說, Bair didn’t say that regulators should take an entirely hands-off approach. Officials, she indicated, should push forgood 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中美. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, 等等.

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.
