Crypto Unit

DFPI recently formed a Crypto Unit under the direction of the DFPI’s Commissioner. The Crypto Unit contributes to DFPI’s supervision, examination, enforcement, and general oversight work relating to crypto assets under all laws that DFPI administers, from banking and lending to securities and commodities. In particular, the Crypto Unit contributes to DFPI’s oversight of crypto asset activity under the California Consumer Financial Protection Law.

The Crypto Unit welcomes meetings with interested stakeholders.  Please contact us to arrange a discussion.
