We write to urge the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) to address the risks to U.S. financial stability posed by unregulated and underregulated stablecoins. The President’s Working Group on Financial Markets, along with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), recently released a report recommending that Congress address these risks by passing new legislation that would impose needed regulations on stablecoin issuers and the stablecoin market.

We also believe that such legislation could help address risks posed by other underregulated monetary instruments.
