Innovate some compliance mechanisms, US Treasury official tells DeFi community

The United States Treasury did a risk assessment of decentralized finance (DeFi) and found the sector lacking in several ways, Assistant Treasury Secretary for Terrorist Financing and Financial Crime Elizabeth Rosenberg reminded an audience at the Atlantic Council think tank on April 21. Get ready for more regulation, she said.

Rosenberg was referring to a report released earlier in April by the Treasury that found scammers, money launderers and North Korean hackers benefitting from the lack of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) compliance in the sector. That report was part of the Treasury’s response to U.S. President Joe Biden’s executive order on the responsible development of digital assets.
