All of the allurement around the crypto community has to do with the fact that most transactions are anonymous and independent form any national regulatory system. But, the new Infrastructure Bill introduced by Congress could stop the crypto tax loophole that investors have used to avoid reporting to the IRS, and lead to a more traceable market of transactions. Now these digital assets will be treated as assets to the IRS, which means any kind of cryptocurrency trade or transaction will be counted on your capital gains tax sheets.
An argument for the increased regulation and oversight for crypto from this Bloomberg article actually makes sense to me. Gary Gensler, SEC Chair, argued that an increase in regulation would mean more investor protection from fraud, which could lead to more adoption of cryptocurrencies on an institutional scale. How tight of a grip should the government have in the altcoin market, I don't know. More regulation will probably hurt the market in the short term before analysts start finding any kind of benefit of oversight.
