What is the president’s action? Biden has instructed the White House National Security Council to be one of the oversight bodies involved in the initiative. He has directed agencies to analyze the potential risks inherent in cryptocurrencies and create a regulatory framework.

“This is designed to look holistically at digital assets and develop a set of policies that give coherency to what the government is trying to do in this space.”

What are the prospects? Washington plans to lead an initiative to create consistency in the regulation of digital assets around the world. Given that cryptocurrencies are cross-border, stricter regulations can only be useful if they are extended internationally.
