Michael Bloomberg Rises in US Presidential Race, Proposes Guardrails for Crypto
Michael Bloomberg’s 2020 US presidential bid is gazing upward. Far up. The previous New York city mayor just qualified for his first ever Democratic presidential discussion. With 19% support broadly, as per the most recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist survey, Bloomberg trails just Bernie Sanders who has earned 31% support.
The billionaire media mogul and larger part owner of Bloomberg L.P., a late participant to the US presidential race, will join the discussion on Wednesday, February 19 in Las Vegas, Nevada, putting his recently released financial reform plan up front.
Bloomberg’s plan requires a centralized record of every single financial transaction with an end goal to reestablish “protections and safeguards” that he says were established after the 2008 financial crisis and then afterward stripped away by President Donald Trump.
Bloomberg says he can fix the harm through centralization and an unmistakable framework for BTC and cryptocurrency – the new asset class intended to oppose centralization.
As per the Bloomberg’s plan –
“Mike will improve America’s ability to anticipate and prevent future crises by restoring funding to the Office of Financial Research, requiring large financial institutions to monitor their risk exposure, and creating a centralized record of all transactions in the markets.”
The plan centers intensely around consumer protections and targets decency in payday lending, credit reporting, auto lending, banking services, access to credit and financial opportunities.
Regardless of centralization contradicting the ethos of decentralized digital currencies, for example Bitcoin and Ethereum, Bloomberg says he’ll support FinTech innovation by building up a sheltered situation for business visionaries and an administrative framework for digital currencies.
“Finally, Mike will promote healthy competition in financial services by creating a ‘regulatory sandbox’ where startups can test concepts, and by providing a clear regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies.”
While crypto community leaders are endeavoring to handle poverty by opening up financial services for the world’s underserved and by evacuating delegates, decreasing high charges and utilizing technology and automated smart contracts to streamline business forms, Bloomberg’s methodology is bureaucratic. He’ll force another duty.
As per his plan –
“Mike will also introduce a tax of 0.1% on all financial transactions to raise revenue needed to address wealth inequality, and support other measures — such as a speed limit on trading — to curb predatory behavior and reduce the risk of destabilizing ‘flash crashes.”
