A controversial topic

As U.Today reported on Jan. 4, Gemini launched the new ‘Revolution Needs Rules’ campaign that is supposed to bring more regulatory clarity to the crypto space. As expected, the expected this move stirred controversy in the cryptocurrency community since not everyone supports the idea of regulations.

For instance, ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees took a dig at Gemini, claiming that the industry is already governed by the rules of cryptography. These rules, according to Voorhees, are able to transcend borders.

Learning from past mistakes

The duo also recalled the infamous Japanese exchange Mt. Gox, claiming that proper regulations could have prevented the hack of the crypto behemoth (it remains the biggest-related crypto hack to date). The now-defunct exchange is expected to start repaying its creditors in May 2019.

They also emphasize that regulations could prevent terrorism, which is especially vital for them as New Yorkers.
