CFTC Says Over 20% Of Cases It Handled This Year Involved Crypto

The CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission) and the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) are two regulating offices in U.S. that have been the subjects of a number of debates as to who should have oversight on the crypto market and the illicit activities that involve cryptocurrencies.

It is public knowledge that the SEC wants nothing less than full control in policing virtual assets such as digital and stablecoins.

Read about the Digitex  Update on 1st September 2022 where the CFTC has finally got round to taking action against Adam Todd for pumping the DGTX token & failing to register with the CFTC.

For its part, CFTC also desires the same level of regulating power as it would entail strengthening its control over certain financial instruments while also having the opportunity to add more revenue for the office.

The neck-to-neck battle between the two regulators might have shifted in favor of CFTC as it recently announced that it will help build up its case.

CFTC Initiates 18 Crypto-Related Actions This Year

According to a statement released by the CFTC on October 20, its Division of Enforcement (DOE) had 82 enforced actions for fiscal year 2022, with 18 of these conducts related to cryptocurrencies.

In terms of percentage, the digital asset class accounted for more than 20% of all filings made by the CFTC for this year.

Commissioner Rostin Benham, commenting on the development, said:

“This FY 2022 enforcement report shows the CFTC continues to aggressively police new digital commodity asset markets with all of its available tools.”

Among those actions taken by Benham’s office this year was the filing of case against bZeroX DAO, investigating the manipulation of the native token of Digitex Futures and an alleged $1.7 billion fraud.

CFTC also imposed its authority over failures of registering a designated contract maker (DCM), futures commission merchant (FCM) and swap execution facility (SEF).

Following this, Benham confidently expressed their readiness to regulate the tricky space of crypto as preparations for them to become a fully financed regulator of this particular industry are already underway.

SEC Leaving Up Bitcoin Regulation To CFTC?

Many were surprised when SEC Chairman Gary Gensler said last month he is rooting for CFTC to handle regulating the largest cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalization, Bitcoin, as well as other “non-security” tokens.

Gensler’s office, for its part, has its hands full as it is still embroiled in a legal dispute with Ripple Labs courtesy of a lawsuit it filed against the creator of the crypto XRP.

The SEC continues to argue that digital currencies are securities and thus will automatically fall under its oversight powers.

The commission’s position in becoming the top crypto market regulator will take a huge blow if Ripple Labs manages to come out of the lawsuit victorious.

The company has been tallying procedural wins over SEC as it tries to finally settle the legal bout and continue with its business.
