President Biden vetoed a House Joint Resolution aimed at repealing the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) Staff Accounting Bulletin 121 (SAB 121), which directs financial institutions holding cryptocurrencies for customers to keep the assets on their balance sheets. 

Critics argue that this directive makes it overly burdensome for financial institutions to engage with crypto companies. Biden's veto was driven by his commitment to safeguarding consumers and investors, asserting that the resolution would unduly limit the SEC's ability to regulate accounting practices. 

Despite pressure from banking groups and lawmakers to sign the resolution, Biden emphasized the importance of establishing appropriate regulations to protect stakeholders in the digital asset market. 

The resolution had garnered support from both chambers of Congress, but Biden's veto effectively blocked its enactment.
