Garlinghouse Criticizes SEC’s Gary Gensler

Garlinghouse didn’t hold back in criticizing the SEC’s Chairman, Gary Gensler. He said that it is very unfortunate that the majority of Dems continue to support Gensler’s unlawful war on crypto. Garlinghouse described Gensler as a “Luddite” .This term is used for those resistant who are new to a technology. This isn’t the first time Garlinghouse has voiced his discontent with the SEC’s approach by labeling it an “unlawful war on crypto.”

A step towards robust crypto regulations

Right after this meeting Congressman Khanna expressed his thoughts and emphasized that the meeting was a step toward creating robust regulations for the Crypto rights. Despite this optimism, many crypto enthusiasts remain skeptical about the Democrats’ willingness to embrace and support crypto fully.

Political Stance on Crypto and Upcoming Elections

On a repetitive basis, Garlinghouse echoed this sentiment on the Democrats’ resistance to crypto. He said that this resistance had led the Republican Party to adopt a more pro crypto stance. Everybody knows that the upcoming U.S. elections are crucial, as a change in administration could potentially end Gensler’s term and his regulation through  enforcement approach. Seems like this shift could create a more favorable environment for the crypto industry.
