He added that the respective cooperation would be significant in establishing a resilient agenda. As per Centeno, this would assist in avoiding the possibility related to regulatory arbitrage. In Centeno’s words, the current regulatory scenario is not very capable. He mentioned that nationwide supervision and regulatory efforts for the international players and worldwide risks are insufficient.
Further, he spoke on decentralized finance (DeFi) and crypto assets. He focused on the irrefutable risk concerning the unavailability of these assets in the future. The official revealed his scepticism concerning the digital assets’ democratizing potential and capability to eventually survive. The respective volatile products went through a massive elevation in fame during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, Centeno added.
However, the official asserted, that this sector turned out to be unsustainable. The official thinks that this unsurprisingly resulted in the crash of many products. On the other hand, he celebrated the Markets in Crypto Assets (MiCA), the initial thorough crypto agenda of the European Union. Nonetheless, he insisted on the additional international consolidation regarding the regulatory endeavours concerning the same regulation principle and same risk.
