In a published article, Paul Grewal, Coinbase’s Chief Legal Officer, emphasized the significance of cryptocurrency in addressing tangible challenges, stating, “Crypto is solving real-world problems, and we need a clear path forward to protect responsible innovation.”
Expressing his viewpoint further, Paul Grewal highlighted the importance of Congress setting clear boundaries for regulating digital assets and the associated technology.
