The Executive Order on Ensuring Responsible Development of Digital Assets was signed by President Joe Biden today.

This Executive Order is the first to take a “whole-of-government” approach to regulate the cryptocurrency business, with the goal of addressing a variety of challenges in the area, including consumer protection, illicit finance, financial inclusion, and “responsible development.”

Protecting consumers
The measures announced Wednesday will focus on six key areas:

  • Consumer and investor protection
  • Financial stability
  • Illicit activity
  • U.S. competitiveness on a global stage
  • Financial inclusion
  • Responsible innovation

Protecting consumers is an important part of the directive. There have been countless stories of investors falling for crypto scams, or losing huge sums of money through cyberattacks on exchanges or users themselves.
