CFTC commissioner has warned of similar themes to the 2008 financial crisis in the crypto market. CFTC commissioner Christy Goldsmith has compared the current situation to the chaos that brought about the 2008 financial crisis. Christy is the latest to ask for more regulatory power over the crypto market. She talked of the ‘contagion risk’ and the following issues. There are also intra-market risks that can affect users across the globe.
She, in her comments, referred to the financial crisis caused in part by the collapse of TerraUSD and 3 Arrows Capital. She said that just as regulators couldn’t see the crisis coming in 2008 due to unregulated companies and products, the same problem is faced today. The commissioner noted that though the crypto market is small today, the growing links and traffic make it problematic if it is unregulated.
