posted 8 months ago
A Connecticut lawmaker has introduced a bill seeking to impose fees on cryptocurrency transactions.

Proposed Bill 5001, submitted by Representative Patricia Dillon, proposes "that the general statutes be amended to establish a fee to transfer or trade virtual currency in this state."

The proposed bill is part of a growing body of legislation seeking to regulate cryptocurrencies, though government-imposed cryptocurrency transaction charges are so far unknown in the U.S.
