Crypto advocacy group Coin Center ruled out responding to Senator Elizabeth Warren’s inquiries captured in her strong-worded letter. The Massachusetts senator labeled the Coin Center in the revolving door of lobbyists.

The advocacy group downplayed the inquiries posed by the Democratic politician and declared it would not back down from its engagement. 

Senator Warren Accuses the Crypto Industry of Stonewalling Rules

In December, Senator Warren penned a letter questioning the motive of the US’ largest crypto exchange, Coinbase, and industry groups for hiring former government officials. The Senator accused them of deploying a not-so-secret weapon to engage former law enforcement and defense officials in a move she considers to undermine the Congressional efforts to investigate crypto’s role in financing terrorism.  

Warren alleged that Coin Center is at the heart of abusing the revolving door where the crypto industry players allocate millions towards creating legitimacy. She accused the crypto industry of a spirited move to stonewall the implementation of common sense rules to restrict crypto usage in terror financing.

Coin Center’s Response

Coin Center dismissed the existence of an obligation to respond to the questions posed by Senator Warren. It downplayed the argument advanced by the Senator that its active participation in shaping public policy debates ultimately undermines the Congressional efforts.

Coin Center indicated that the bills Warren labels as common sense rules are unviable, unconstitutional, and unfair. Such awareness constitutes the basis for Coin Center to oppose the proposed Warren’s sponsored bills. 

The advocacy group declared it would not apologize for honoring its patriotic duty. The agency labeled Warren’s bills as both unconstitutional and expanding draconian expansion of politically biased surveillance. 

Coin Center dismissed the viability of Warren’s proposals, labeling them as ineffective in averting crypto usage by terrorist entities such as Hamas. The agency indicates that implementing the proposals is time and energy-intensive, which would have become beneficial when directed to alternative approaches to avert terrorist financing. 

Coin Center Faults Warren Approach

Coin Center faulted Warren’s approach by highlighting that the discovery of enforcement gaps necessitates empowering the agencies involved to avert terrorism financing effectively effectively. The agency challenged Senator Warren for failing to secure additional funding for various crypto enforcement units, including the FBI, DOJ, and FinCEN. 

Coin Center reiterated its support for the bipartisan efforts initiated towards understanding and resolving crypto role in financing Hamas and terrorist entities. Coin Center admitted supporting the letter penned by the US lawmakers to the Treasury and White House.  

The crypto advocacy group emphasized that it would decline to provide further answers to Warren’s questions. Nonetheless, Coin Center affirmed its openness toward honest and respectful discussions to bring viable policies in the crypto landscape. 

The increased input from advocacy group coincides with a period when industry executives are optimistic of regulatory clarity. Circle’s chief Jeremy Allaire expressed confidence that the US will realize the elusive stablecoin laws that eluded the sector in 2023.
