Stablecoin regulation has become a hot topic, and for very good reason. For one thing, it's an extremely fast growing space. Stablecoins are also a primary way that the crypto interacts with the banking system.

He explains why he believes regulatory progress can be made right now with the laws that currently exist, and what a new arrangement for issuers would look like.
