Washington, D.C. – Today, Commodity Futures Trading Commission Commissioner Kristin Johnson issued the following statement:

“I thank Chairwoman Stabenow, Ranking Member Boozman, and co-sponsors Senators Cory Booker and John Thune for their introduction of thoughtful legislation that aims to improve the oversight of digital asset markets, the Digital Commodities Consumer Protection Act of 2022.  In order for the industry to thrive and fulfill its promise, digital asset markets must integrate stronger investor protections and robust market integrity safeguards.  The CFTC, as part of the complement of federal and state regulators, has an important role to play in the oversight of these markets.  I look forward to working with Congress, my colleagues at the CFTC, and my fellow regulators to develop a regulatory infrastructure that achieves effective customer protections and market integrity safeguards.”
