US Congressional hearing on digital asset regulation focuses on disclosure

Quick Summary

An agriculture subcommittee heard a CFTC official, a law professor, a Chainalysis cofounder and Charles Hoskinson air their views on regulation and adjacent topics.

Digital assets are defined as commodities, McGonagle said, but the SEC can determine when they are securities.
