Additional Licenses

We strongly believe in the need for clear regulation in the cryptoasset space. To that end, we have a number of licenses pending in other jurisdictions and continue to be proactive in the application process.

We work with officials to share our experience & expertise in the market to help design thoughtful policies.

Cumberland made the following specific recommendations in the President’s Working Group Stablecoins report, as we believe Stablecoins have the clearest path to important regulatory clarity and are a critical underpinning of the current crypto ecosystem.


Define “Stablecoins” as fully reserved coins backed by a single fiat currency in the form of cash and short-dated government securities.


Require that Stablecoin reserves be deposited at insured depository institutions and held in segregated accounts.


Establish disclosure and audit rules for Stablecoins, including a requirement that issuers regularly publish “proof of reserves” to support their ability to facilitate redemptions.


Require that Stablecoin issuers honor redemption requests above minimum value within a reasonable period of time at nominal cost, provided the request adheres to established banking rules.

Give oversight authority to established banking regulators.
