Leading Web3 Investment Firm CoinFund Calls for Regulation of Centralized Intermediaries and Safe Harbor Programs

CoinFund, a leading web3 investment firm, announces the publication of Better Technology, Better System, a whitepaper which outlines the way forward for crypto regulation in the United States with 10 clear regulatory principles. The paper is authored by Christopher Perkins, President of CoinFund, and Member of the CFTC’s Global Markets Advisory Committee (GMAC).

CoinFund’s whitepaper comes as the US crypto industry grapples with increasing regulatory action, including but not limited to the SEC’s Wells Notice to Coinbase and the CFTC’s recent suit against Binance.

The paper offers policymakers 10 concrete recommendations including calling for the regulation of centralized intermediaries but not decentralized technology, and prioritizing sandboxes and safe harbor programs aligned with SEC Commissioner Peirce’s proposals. In addition, the whitepaper calls for regulation to focus on the following principles: client asset protection; risk disclosures; transparency; cost-efficiency; inclusivity; engagement and privacy.

Speaking on the publication of Better Technology, Better System, Chris Perkins said, “The best way forward for the crypto industry is through reasoned and good faith engagement. The 10 principles in Better Technology, Better Solutions can guide us towards a path of responsible innovation where entrepreneurs have the certainty that they require to remain focused on building, growing the economy and powering job creation.”

As part of CoinFund’s publication of Better Technology, Better Solutions, CoinFund encourages the crypto community to remain focused on proactive engagement with regulators and policymakers based on clear and realistic principles, outlined in the paper.
