However, Brian Quintenz, a member of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the other major financial regulator in the United States, believes that crypto is not under the jurisdiction of the Securities and Exchange Commission at all.

“To be clear, the SEC does not have any authority over pure commodities or their trading platforms, whether those commodities are wheat, gold, oil or crypto assets.”

Quentins said this just hours after former CFTC Chairman Chris Giancarlo made the same claim. According to Giancarlo, only the CFTC has experience regulating markets such as cryptocurrencies and bitcoin:

“Only one US regulatory agency has experience regulating the bitcoin and cryptocurrency markets and it is not the Securities and Exchange Commission. It is the CFTC. If the Biden administration is serious about reasonable regulation of cryptocurrency, it should appoint the chair of the CFTC.”
