The crypto community understands such measures as an inappropriate balance between the support of innovations and end-users. This said the new regulation is definitely bad news for the crypto market.

Bloomberg analysts highlight: “The governments cleared things up, as they are going to play the crucial role in crypto regulations, while long-term measures are still in progress.”

Nellie Liang, the Undersecretary for Domestic Finance, focuses on the necessity to protect end-users: “We are going to avoid the problem of so-called stablecoins that are probably non-stable physically.”

Stablecoins are getting more power, providing holders with new opportunities. In 2020 the volumes of the stablecoins market increased by 1000%, and the industry continues moving to new peaks.
