Acting OCC Brian Brooks has been nominated for a five year term as Comptroller of Currency. He is pro crypto and pro innovation. Seems like a well balanced individual for the job.

  1. “Brooks: My personal belief is the role of government is to be responsive to the needs of the citizenry. To me, that is what a free market democracy looks like. What an authoritarian regime does is it decides what is good for people and it imposes that on them despite their resistance. What a free market democracy does is it looks at how people are behaving and says, OK, how do I need to respond to that to allow people to maximally pursue their happiness by having those things in a way that doesn’t hurt others or blow up the system and the society. And so, on one hand, you put it exactly right, somewhere between 40 and 60 million Americans own crypto. I don’t want to be the taxicab commission of resisting Uber. If everyone wants to ride Uber, it’s not my job to say you can’t. It’s my job to figure out what are the issues going to be, how are we going to figure out how do I make sure people aren’t getting assaulted, how do I make sure they are not getting price-gouged, that Ubers will come when they say they will come, but not prohibit Uber. Same thing with crypto. Millions of people want this and use it and value it. It’s not my job to tell them they are wrong, it’s my job to tell them to figure out what their risks are and are they managed appropriately and is it a system that people trust. Simple as that.”
