Speaking at an industry conference on Thursday, SEC Chair, Gary Gensler, said the commission was looking to give the CFTC more power to regulate «non-security tokens […] and the related intermediaries.» He added:

«Let’s ensure that we don’t inadvertently undermine securities laws. We’ve got a $100 trillion capital market. Crypto is less than $1 trillion worldwide. But we don’t want that to somehow undermine what we do elsewhere.»
