As a trailblazer in navigating the complex terrain of crypto regulations, Bosonic emerges as a leading force in the industry. Founder Rosario Ingargiola's foresight in securing regulatory approvals for trading digital assets—especially those classified as securities—stands as a testament to the company's commitment to compliance and innovation. Bosonic's proactive approach challenges industry giants to prioritize regulatory alignment over mere public discourse, setting a precedent for responsible engagement in the evolving crypto landscape.

“Lack of regulatory clarity” is the catchall complaint levied against U.S. regulators by most major players in the crypto industry. But the founders of Bosonic and Prometheum disagree. Both firms have spent years chasing the necessary regulatory approvals to compliantly trade digital assets, including those seen as securities. Last week, Prometheum secured a potentially landmark approval to operate as a special purpose broker-dealer for digital asset securities. Prometheum co-founder Aaron Kaplan and Rosario Ingargiola, founder of Bosonic, which earlier secured a similar approval, discuss why big players like Coinbase need to quit carping in the court of public opinion and do the hard work of getting approved.
