Buterin Criticizes US Crypto Policy’s Impact on Projects

Ethereum (ETH) creator Vitalik Buterin has recently expressed his concern over the US approach to crypto regulation, especially how it could potentially harm projects like Solana (SOL). The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) had categorized the SOL token as a security in its lawsuit against both Binance and Coinbase.

Buterin Expresses Sympathy for Affected Projects

In response to this news, Buterin shared his sympathy for other affected projects, stressing that if Ethereum were to prevail by excluding other blockchains from exchanges, it would not be a moral or sustainable victory in the long run. Furthermore, he added that he feels bad that these projects don’t deserve such treatment. Other tokens categorized as securities include Cardano’s ADA token, Polygon’s MATIC token, Filecoin’s FIL token, The Sandbox’s SAND token, and Axie Infinity’s AXS token.

SEC Chair Declines to Provide Answer Regarding Ether Classification

Interestingly enough, while these tokens faced scrutiny from the SEC, ether remained unaffected by their crackdown. This lack of action came as no surprise since during April’s hearing before the House Financial Services Committee SEC Chair Gary Gensler refused to provide a definitive answer regarding whether Ether should be classified as a security or commodity; instead insisting that it depends on the facts and law at hand.

Competition Lies Not In Rival Chains but Centralized World

According to Buterin himself though, competition within blockchain does not lie solely in rival chains but rather with an increasingly centralized world which is rapidly gaining influence in various sectors of technology industry today. He further emphasized that working together through collaboration is key for attaining success in an industry dominated by centralized giants such as Amazon or Google who have been around for decades now and are thus far more established than most decentralized networks out there currently are.

ConclusionIn conclusion , it is clear that while Ethereum may have avoided classification as a security for now , there remains much uncertainty surrounding how cryptocurrency will be regulated across different countries . Despite this however , there still lies opportunity for collaboration between decentralized networks so as to better compete with more established centralized giants .
