Winklevoss twins are among the prominent players who have contributed to the crypto revolution with the stablecoin Gemini USD and the upcoming exchange, Gemini. The twins addressed a topic that is somewhat a pariah in the cryptocurrency ecosystem, rules.
The twins launched a campaign not so long ago regarding “the revolution needs rules”, which received mixed feelings from the community as some people pushed it back while others understood the need for rules. In a recent tweet, Cameron Winklevoss addressed the same topic. He stated:
“Some have wondered why @Gemini believes the Revolution Needs Rules. Answer: Crypto doesn’t need rules, but the companies built on top of it do. See excerpt from court-appointed monitor’s (Ernst & Young) third report filed in Nova Scotia Supreme Court re: QuadrigaCX matter”
He clarified this in a subsequent tweet with the example of QuadrigaCX. The exchange allowed the editing of its internal ledger to move customer funds into new accounts. Insiders were even allowed to move these funds and trade with them.
“Every incident in crypto to date has been/would have been PREVENTABLE w/ proper rules and thoughtful regulation… Regulatory oversight = making sure people do what they say they’re going to do.”
There have been a large number of exchanges that have used users’ funds for personal profit and insider trading. The recent death of the CEO of QuadrigaCX exchange proved that the crypto revolution needs rules to keep such corporations and entities on track.
@jStepahnop1, a Twitter user, commented:
“Insider manipulation definitely needs to be stopped on crypto exchanges for sure and commend you guys for your work in that department, as long as it does not filter down to inhibiting the inherent freedoms crypto provides for everyday people”
@cryptomanusa, another Twitter user, added:
“Why so against Craig Wright? He appears all about the rules. I have seen zero proof of scamming rather significant intelligence with possibly an annoying personality.”
