The cryptocurrency bill is expected to address token definitions
Earlier, during a seminar on digital assets, Senator Gillibrand stated that the revised version of the bill would be more detailed, particularly in terms of defining tokens and the processes required to obtain them. As the senators have stated several times, this move is intended to provide clarity and address the ambiguity that exists in the cryptocurrency landscape.
According to recent reports, the upcoming bill primarily seeks to define cryptocurrencies with the possible removal of the “security” label attached to them. In addition, the proposed legislation would presumably place a global ban on algorithmic stablecoins although further deliberation is needed to determine which entities are authorized to issue stablecoins and the requirements associated with maintaining their USD reserves.
