  • 23:28 Calibra Wallet Are Unaccessible To Cubans, Due To American Sanctions

    Despite widespread Facebook and WhatsApp usage in Cuba among the type of unbanked people the Libra white paper prioritizes, a Facebook spokesperson told CoinDesk there aren't any plans to make the Calibra wallet accessible to Cubans, due to American sanctions.
    Facebook is already facing regulatory backlash at home, with multiple grillings this week on Capitol Hill of blockchain lead David Marcus and calls from lawmakers for the company to stop developing Libra.
    However, according to a regulatory lawyer in the fintech space who spoke on the condition of anonymity, it appears money transfers to vetted individuals in Cuba isn't illegal. But, the lawyer said, it does raise regulatory risks that the Libra Association may prefer to avoid altogether.

  • 21:47 SEC Commissioner Embraces The Idea Of Regulators Taking A Safe Harbor Approach Toward Cryptocurrency Space

    Hester Peirce, a member of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), said she's come around to the idea of regulators taking a "safe harbor approach" toward the cryptocurrency space, as a means of navigating the tricky terrain that is existing U.S. securities law. (A similar safe harbor stance has been floated for financial institutions seeking to serve the recreational cannabis industry, which remains under a federal prohibition restricting cannabis companies' access to banking and financial services.)
    What Peirce is concerned about is the SEC's reluctance to provide a firm guidance on crypto assets. It's a status quo she recently compared to "a regulatory version of an escape room," and a somewhat puzzling one in Peirce's estimation.
    Peirce is also concerned that the U.S. runs the risk of falling behind its global counterparts in providing a financial regulatory framework that enables, and is hospitable to, innovation.
