We need less regulation not more: Bruce Fenton demands

In the last Security Token Summit, Bruce Fenton stated that regulations on the cryptocurrency industry should not be increased, rather it should be decreased. 


Bruce Fenton, who is running for the United States Senate representing New Hampshire and the founder and CEO of Chainstone Labs took the stage by storm at the 4th Annual Security Token Summit 2022 during an exclusive session to discuss the government regulations on the cryptocurrency industry.


Upon being asked if stablecoins needed more regulations like FDIC insurance, Bruce said “I don't think we need any new regulations on these things. I think we should have fewer regulations, as regulations have a price.” According to him, the entire cryptocurrency industry should not be caged with more and more regulations fearing it would go on to hamper one of the fastest-growing, most exciting industries in the world. As an example, Bruce talked about how the 1933 act did not work all this time and how it still concerns those who are planning to raise money and set up a business.

There could be people when we're long dead who are still suffering from the regulations just as we have people now who are suffering from the regulations,” Bruce added while reaffirming his stance against more regulations. 


Produced by Blockchain Venture Studio Draper Goren Holm, Security Token Summit is a high-end, Security Token & Digital Securities focused event. It features a robust agenda spanning a variety of themes such as custody, compliance, regulation, investing, marketing, tokenization, standards, issuance, and real estate.
