According to a post from eToro, from December 26, U.S users will not open brand-new Cardano or Tron positions. While December 31 is when staking for those digital properties will end.

Moreover, staking benefit payments are set to surface on January 15, 2022, with the last benefit being paid in USD instead of in the particular tokens.

The company explained that they are restricting U.S users from opening brand-new positions. And they do not require users to close existing employment opportunities. Nonetheless, the net outcome will still see a trailing off of Cardano and Tron trading volume with time.

“You will still be able to close existing positions as you see fit.”

IOHK boss chimes in with his views on U.S crypto regulation

Speaking to the Thinking Crypto YouTube channel recently, Cardano creator Charles Hoskinson stated the U.S requires a brand-new outlook about crypto policy. Adding that, the current regulatory environment does not work well for digital properties.

In specific, Hoskinson highlighted the defects in both practical and definitional systems. Explaining, even more, he stated crypto requirements to be controlled based upon how it works or is utilized.

“The US needs to move to a functional regulation system instead of a definitional system. We’ve moved beyond the world that something’s a commodity and something’s the currency and something’s a security.”

Running with the definitional system, Hoskinson knocked how regulators have stopped working to sufficiently identify sound meanings, mentioning virtual possession companies and energy tokens as examples of this.

“we need to move to a system for regulation that has much better definitions about things. So we really don’t have a good definition of virtual asset service provider in the United States. We don’t really have a definition of what is a utility token…”

Overall, he stated the market requires a much better practical design and a much better definitional design to move on regarding fairer policy.
