Pro-Bitcoin resolution passes vote in US Congress

posted about 6 years ago
The US House of Representatives has passed a non-binding resolution calling for a national technology innovation policy that includes supportive language for digital currencies and blockchain technology.

Introduced in July, the resolution calls on the US government to craft a national policy for technology, with specific mentions for digital currencies and blockchain. The bill was written by Indiana Representative Adam Kinzinger, with Representative Tony Cardenas from California sponsoring.

The resolution passed by a voice vote following statements from backers on 12/09. Though non-binding, the measure is perhaps the most significant to emerge from Congress to date on the subject of digital currencies and blockchain tech.
