posted 10 months ago
Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Bob Goodlatte revealed in his annual disclosure report that he owns digital currencies. Also, his son is an angel investor in Coinbase, the largest digital asset trading platform in the US. Congressman Goodlatte had submitted his disclosure report this year which stated he has investments worth somewhere between $17,000 and $80,000, with a major portion of his investment being in Bitcoin.

In late June, the House Ethics Committee passed a set of rules that mandated members of Congress to disclose their digital currency ownership in their annual disclosure reports, just like other assets.
