US Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Gary Gensler is stepping up his push to get crypto trading platforms to register with the Wall Street regulator. 

Gensler said in a video released on Thursday that he’s asked the agency’s staff to work with digital-asset exchanges so that they are “regulated much like securities exchanges.” Officials at the markets watchdog are also developing ways to get certain coins  to be registered as securities, he said.
