Warren also said that the current US financial has its problem right now but one must look at the crypto design to see where it can be helpful to the existing financial system and also lookout for problems that it may cause.

“We have a lot of problems in our financial system right now. The question we have to ask is looking at the design of crypto to see where it may be better but also to see where it may inject its risks into the system.”
