Mersinger feels crypto regulation is needed
Summer Mersinger, a commissioner of the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), expressed her belief that the time may have come to take action on the regulation of cryptocurrencies.
On November 18, while presenting at the Texas Blockchain Summit, Mersinger pondered the potential requirements for successful crypto legislation in the United States.
Mersinger saw that the process was moving in the right direction. " We are getting to the point where maybe we are beyond the education stage and now it is time for action," she added. "We are getting to the point that maybe we are past the education stage.However, due to the fact that it is not a party issue, it is an intriguing political matter. " Mersinger proceeded by saying that the CTFC and Securities and Exchange Commission will ultimately iron out their differences about jurisdiction. She said that there is a place for both of them; the challenge now is to find out how to make it work.

It's terrible, in my opinion, since a lot of the time we forget about the states while having a dialogue.
