What did Gensler say? According to the SEC chief, the regulator’s employees are currently exploring ways to include crypto exchanges in the regulation of traditional investments. Gensler noted that the platforms should eventually receive similar types of tools for operating in the market as those offering stocks or other assets venues.

“If the trading platforms do not come into the regulated space, it would be another year of the public being vulnerable,” Gensler stated.
