The Head of the SEC’s Crypto Unit Steps Down

David Hirsch, the head of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission’s Crypto Asset and Cyber Unit in the Division of Enforcement, is leaving the agency. After nine years of service, he has decided to depart, though he has not disclosed any details about his future plans. As crypto becomes an increasingly hot political issue in the United States ahead of this year’s presidential election, the SEC is finding itself more and more in the spotlight.
