In a brand new video update, Charles Hoskinson says that the disintegration of FTX might push lawmakers to result in new rules for the digital belongings business.
Hoskinson says that FTX was not a failure of crypto itself, however of flawed and centralized infrastructure round it.
“Crypto didn’t fail. Individuals failed. Individuals in positions of belief. On the finish of the day, as a lot as we prefer to imagine within the ideas of cryptocurrency, this had every thing to do with individuals placing their cash in centralized exchanges and organizations entrusting centralized companies to do one thing on their behalf.
That’s the very business we’re making an attempt to eliminate with the cryptocurrency area. Sadly, it’s going to now be conflated and there’s a really excessive risk that the fallout of this shall be new laws, hopefully respectable laws, however there’s a powerful risk that it gained’t be.”

“That is sadly the consequence when you’ve got individuals who don’t know what they’re doing get into positions of energy and belief and create cascading and catastrophic injury. That is simply the tip of the iceberg. For those who take a look at the monetary relationships that FTX had, as we go down the checklist, it might create a cascade of insolvencies and sadly crypto doesn’t get a bailout, however our rivals do…
We don’t get [bailouts]. We simply get the privilege of cleansing up the mess after which being blamed for it and having to cope with the monetary consequence ourselves. Now, I do imagine this isn’t going to kill cryptocurrency. I do imagine that our business shall be a lot stronger sooner or later, and I do imagine that our greatest days are nonetheless forward of us…
[FTX] might find yourself being the straw that breaks the camel’s again, and adjustments, a minimum of within the brief to mid time period, how cryptocurrencies work in America. Specifically, it adjustments the urge for food lawmakers have for giving the business a pro-growth freedom mandate.
We might take a look at a world the place non-custodial wallets are now not permitted in the US. We might take a look at a world the place each cryptocurrency apart from Bitcoin is labeled as a safety and compelled to adjust to onerous rules which is able to rob them of liquidity.”
