The voices of a growing number of influential politicians and innovators are more loudly proclaiming the importance of the cryptocurrency industry.

This weekend a congressman from Minnesota, Tom Emmer, said “America’s technology companies are important job creators that lead the country in innovation.

[blockchain is] revolutionary technology, I will continue to make a defense of cryptocurrency in the halls of Congress.”
