As we continue uncovering the facts surrounding FTX, one thing is certain: Any future policy that doesn’t protect self-custody of digital assets will leave consumers vulnerable to third-party failures. My Keep Your Coins Act protects this right. wsj.com/articles/ftx-c…

@Kevin_C_ONeil @DibbSpot You should read the bill. It establishes a brightline test to make clear what is and what is not a security. Some are clearly just securities - controlled by a central authority. Some have been literal pump and dump scams with no action taken by the SEC. Bitcoin is a commodity.

The Token Taxonomy Act sets a brightline test to define when a digital asset is or is not a security, addresses custody (not your keys not your coins), and tax treatment. Additionally, my Keep Your Coins Act protects self-custody, which has been scrutinized by both parties.

You know, it's certainly possible that the stalling tactics to prevent regulatory clarity for digital assets in America are related to the Fed's CBDC project... If there really are people engineering a reset of the monetary system, off-ramps with self-custody are problematic.
