New resolution calls on US government to support Blockchain

posted almost 6 years ago
A new resolution submitted to the US House of Representatives calls for the development of "a national policy for technology" that would include digital currencies and blockchain technology.

It invokes the idea of bitcoin without calling it by name – referring to "alternative non-fiat currencies" – and blockchain tech, which it says has the potential to "fundamentally change" how trust and security are established in online transactions.

The resolution goes on to say that alternative currencies are "leveraging technology" to improve security and increase transparency in ways that could allow them to supplant the "decades-old payment technology" used by financial institutions.
