The Biden administration hiring two officials in the CFTC to regulate the crypto operations in the country. In addition to Rostin Behnam as a permanent chair.
In the present time, crypto regulation across all countries is a big concern with a perfect regulation framework, which can provide a better clarity against the crypto services. In the present time the Securities & Exchange Commission is the biggest regular authority working to regulate the Crypto Market and alongside SEC, there is CFTC which is part of it. CFTC right now regulates derivatives and futures based crypto products based firms.
Now, reports say that CFTC has two open positions in the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). And these two will be filled by the Biden administration soon.
The new positions of the two vacant posts will be decided by a simple vote event by the Senate currently controlled by Democrats.
Right now two names are coming, which are at high support.
As per reports, these two most probable persons are Kristin Johnson and Christy Goldsmith Romero. These two will join as a commissioner in CFTC.
As we know, Rostin Behnam has been temporarily working in CFTC since January. His position is temporary. But there are huge chances that Rostin will be able to acquire a permanent position as chairman.
So new hiring will give permanent positions for Behnam and Kristin Johnson and Christy Goldsmith Romero.
Here support for the Kristin & Christy is very high because they are currently special inspector general of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, a federal law enforcement agency that deals with financial crimes related to the U.S. government’s bailout program. And also Romero also has experience working in investigating financial institution crime.
