PRO-CRYPTO COMMISSIONER.    Several cryptocurrency publications have extolled Roisman's support for digital currencies and believe he may be the 'bellwether' for SEC-approval of a bitcoin investment vehicle. With Roisman on board, 3 of the 5 SEC commissioners are pro-bitcoin ETF. Robert Jackson and Hester Peirce are pro-bitcoin, while Chair Jay Clayton and Kara Stein are anti-bitcoin.


According to a recent article in, Roisman took a strong stance earlier this year for fair regulation of cryptocurrency when he challenged regulators to act in a “fair and transparent manner” and ensure they are working as intended in line with the agency’s mission. In part, Roisman said: 


“The SEC must examine and re-examine its rules, regulations, and guidelines to ensure that they are still working as intended to accomplish the SEC’s mission. This is most recently manifested in areas such as data protection and cybersecurity as well as the emergence of new investments and technologies such as initial coin offerings and blockchain.”
