US State Bank Regulators Agree to Single Set of Rules for Fintech, Crypto Firm Licensing

Agencies from 48 states are expected to unveil a new framework today that will simplify and consolidate regulation for crypto companies.

Updated Sep 14, 2021 at 9:56 a.m. UTC

Bank regulators in 49 U.S. states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico plan to make compliance for cryptocurrency companies simpler by consolidating supervisory exams.

  • The Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS), a coordinating body for state regulators, confirmed to Reuters the new regime for money service businesses (MSB) will introduce the same rules and standards across 48 states.
  • This will streamline compliance, making it easy for state-licensed money transmitters like Coinbase to work across multiple states, instead of going through the time and expense of getting regulated in each and every one.
  • One state will lead a group in representing all 49 regulatory bodies in evaluating each different company, and this model will apply to 78 MSBs, including Western Union and PayPal, that together move a reported $1 trillion annually.
  • Speaking to Reuters, John Ryan, CSBS’ president and CEO, said the framework will be just as robust, but much more efficient, at enforcing state regulation.
  • The CSBS is expected to unveil the new regulatory regime sometime on Tuesday.

UPDATE (Sept. 15, 2020, 18:05 UTC): This article has been updated for clarity.
