Alison Jimenez Quoted in Financial Times on Crypto

DSA president, Alison Jimenez, was quote in three recent Financial Times articles on various crypto issues.

Ms. Jimenez was quoted in the article “Bitcoin’s Wall Street Takeover Frustrates Crypto’s True Believers.”

“There will now be a bifurcated market in crypto,” said Alison Jimenez, president of Dynamic Securities Analytics, a securities litigation consultancy. “Those that still want to trade crypto will still go to these exchanges. Those that want to hold bitcoin as an investment will just take the simpler and more straightforward ETF route.”

The FT also quoted Alison Jimenez in a November 2023 article titled, “CZ Takes Risk with His Biggest Deal.”

As Alison Jimenez, president of Dynamic Securities Analytics, told me this week, the DOJ’s action could mean “customers shift business to other exchanges not under DOJ scrutiny.”

Finally, on November 17, 2023, the Financial Times quoted from Ms. Jimenez’s opening statement to the House Financial Services Sub-committee on Digital Assets.

During a congressional hearing on illicit activity in the digital assets industry, president of consulting firm Dynamic Securities Analytics, Alison Jimenez, said US legislation aimed at reeling in the crypto sector may not protect consumers against bad actors in the space.

“US legislation still doesn’t change the underlying features of cryptocurrency. I’m concerned that we might have great rules, and if the US institutions follow them that’s wonderful, but US citizens and customer will still be victims of those external organizations that are going to come here… we might be able to adjust and limit some of the issues we see within exchanges but [crypto] is not going to stop being a useful tool for criminals.”
