DeFi将为SEC提供良好的监管测试, 皮尔士专员说

Hester Peirce, commissioner for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and known by the nicknameCrypto Mom,” welcomes the challenge of regulating DeFi.

In a speech for a George Washington University Law School event on the digital economy, Peirce said decentralized finance, or DeFi could be the alternative legacy financial system many are seeking given the surge in anti-Wall Street sentiment surrounding the short squeeze of GameStop stocks. The SEC Commission said the technology could provide avery good testfor the regulatory body in protecting investors and markets.

Although a work in progress with all the growing pains and rough edges that implies, DeFi’s promises of democratization, open access, 透明度, predictability, and systemic resilience are alluring,” said Peirce. “We regulators, mindful of the potential upsides and downsides, need to provide both legal clarity and the freedom to experiment so that DeFi can compete with CeFi to offer investors financial services.

Peirce added that the SEC should be looking at ways to ensure that the markets are inclusive, given the frustration many have expressed starting with the 2008 financial crisis but most recently over the GameStop trades. She said the commission should bemore proactive in embracing technologyto make the economy work better for more people.

The digital economy does pose some new regulatory challenges, but it also gives us new tools to meet those challenges. We should use those tools with genuine care for the freedom of the people we regulate.

The commissioner has previously said that DeFi has created new challenges for the SEC for a number of unresolved legal issues. Though it’s likely some projects in the space will fall under securities laws, there are many DeFi offerings consisting of tokens that lack liquidity and used to fund blockchain projects. She cautioned developers to speak with the SEC if the projectlooks like the traditional security.
