3. US Senate Bill & CFTC to Defines Bitcoin & Ethereum as Digital Commodities
US Senators have drafted a second bill to regulate the regulation of crypto assets. Along with that, they will also provide regulatory authority to the CFTC. The plan is that this bill will change the definition of “commodity” by including “digital commodity” into it. And will apply to a wide range of crypto assets, including Bitcoin and Ethereum. This move will effectively give the CFTC jurisdiction over regulation in the crypto sector.
