Abstract

The crypto ecosystem has the capacity to undermine our national security, worsen the climate crisis, harm consumers and retail investors, and threaten overall economic stability-all while lining billionaires' pockets. I urge you to utilize every tool at your disposal, including. .. statutory authorities, to protect consumers and investors, our economic and national security, and our environment.
