"The United States should lay the groundwork for either launching a digital dollar or passing a few of the private sector solutions to ensure the dollar stays on the top of the game and we don’t fall behind," Dennis says. "This kind of two-track approach will balance between the extremes of getting digital currencies all together as well as allowing the market to operate unhindered."
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Dennis also discusses:
- Her latest research work around cryptocurrencies;
- How best to handle "rug pull" scams;
- What stand the government must take on cryptocurrency.
Dennis is the program director and government relations specialist for the Cybercrime Support Network, where she is developing a Crypto Scam Awareness campaign.
