According to Bloomberg, Rostin Behnam, the chairman of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), stated in an interview that there are significant differences between the CFTC and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), led by Gary Gensler, regarding regulatory approaches to cryptocurrencies. Behnam emphasized that the CFTC is responsible for protecting American investors in commodity financial asset markets, and many of these cryptocurrencies are considered commodities. He mentioned that BTC and ETH are commodities, and the introduction of BTC and ETH futures on exchanges is driven by market demand and supported by legal analysis. Behnam highlighted the lack of a central coordinating entity or common enterprise as the reason why cryptocurrencies and other commodities are not classified as securities.
