Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has slammed Gary Gensler and the SEC at the Republican presidential debate.
Presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy came down hard on SEC chair Gary Gensler and other “three letter agencies” during the recent Republican presidential debate, claiming that regulators had failed to keep up with crypto.
During the 4th Republican presidential debate of the 2024 cycle on Dec. 7, Ramaswamy said it was “nothing short of embarrassing” that Gensler couldn’t admit before Congress that Ethereum’s native currency Ether (ETH), should be viewed as a commodity.
Ramaswamy is one of a few presidential candidates who have made crypto a central theme of their campaign. Notably, he is the only Republican presidential candidate to unveil a crypto policy framework.
