On July 21, Peirce also offered her testimony to the US Senate where she talked about financial innovation. She also talked about her intentions and plans to set up a proper regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies. She has said, “If the Commission takes up that challenge with the necessary seriousness and alacrity, our capital markets will remain dynamic, vibrant, and preeminent”.
