J. Christopher Giancarlo, chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) said this week that cryptocurrency is a generational interest and that regulators need to treat it with respect.

Sharing his thoughts on cryptocurrency regulation at the Milken Institute Global Conference, “We need to take a moment and respect this generation’s interest in this new instrument (bitcoin),” he said, according to a Reuters report. “Not with derision, but with a little bit of attention and respect and respond with policy initiatives that really are thoughtful and forward looking.”
