A new ICBA blog post breaks down the policy debate over treating cryptoassets as securities or commodities and the implications for community banks.

Details: In Main Street Matters, ICBA Senior Vice President of Digital Assets and Innovation Policy Brian Laverdure discusses the dispute over which agency should be the lead crypto regulator and what it means for the traditional financial system.

ICBA View: ICBA has expressed support for the Securities and Exchange Commission’s efforts to apply securities laws and regulations to crypto entities because it agrees that most cryptoassets likely qualify as securities.
