What are the authorities' intentions? According to the agency’s interlocutors, the US government intends to strengthen the agency’s role in regulating the crypto industry by expanding the SEC’s powers. This, in particular, has been insisted by SEC chairman Gary Gensler. He wants the commission to be allowed to impose restrictions on the issuers of stablecoins.

Officially, the Ministry of Finance has to provide information about the transfer of powers to regulate stablecoins to the SEC this week, Bloomberg's interlocutors added.

What had happened before? In early October, Gensler said that stablecoins represent a system-wide risk. Their number has grown 10 times over the past year, and the SEC’s head considers them “chips for poker in crypto casino”.
