The democratic lawmakers of the US have now demanded the country’s crypto firms to disclose all the data in relation to their diversity practices.
According to the reports, the US Representatives administered by House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters has issued a letter to 20 largest firms connected with crypto, Web3 and digital assets companies.
These big companies include, Aave, Andreessen Horowitz, Binance.US, Circle, Coinbase, Crypto.com, Digital Currency Group, FTX, Gemini, Haun Ventures, Kraken, OpenSea, PancakeSwap, Paradigm, Paxos, Ripple, Sequoia Capital, Stellar Development Foundation, Tether, and UniSwap
Lawmakers Issue Questionnaire
The reason behind demand for the letter is that lawmakers will use this letter to understand how the companies are working towards creating an unbiased environment for everyone. The letter was basically a questionnaire regarding the various practices that the companies are practicing.
However, the reports state that the questionnaire wasn’t made public. According to the letter, alarmingly, there is a shortage of information that is readily available to the general public for assessing the diversity of America’s major digital assets businesses and the investment firms that have major stakes in these firms.
The letter also mentions that the companies have just four weeks of time to respond to the questionnaire as the said date is on or before September 2nd.
As known, the information regarding cryptocurrencies are very limited and now the lawmakers are attempting to change this scenario. Even regulators are eager to understand what is it going on with investors?
Till today, the questions related to crypto didn’t have much information as it just consisted of what they sold, received, or exchanged any digital currencies.
A further development states that the SEC is currently looking into every US cryptocurrency exchange, including Binance, according to a spokesperson for Senator Lummis. It is already a widely known reality that Coinbase is being looked into by the regulatory authority.
