This bill will BAN "illegal" stablecoins!
Under the guise of “protecting people” it will require stablecoin issuers to obtain a banking charter. Meaning, only banks will be able to issue stablecoins.
They said: “Digital currencies, whose value is permanently pegged to or stabilized against a conventional currency like the dollar, pose new regulatory challenges while also represent a growing source of the market, liquidity, and credit risk.”
Indeed it does seem highly suspicious that the act seems to further entrench the interests of juggernauts like JP Morgan Chase, a bank that already has its own stablecoin, to the detriment of those who are looking for alternatives to the banking system rather than forced participation in it.
