posted 3 months ago
A bitcoin-friendly U.S. lawmaker is hoping to get members of Congress to disclose their holdings of cryptocurrency assets.

In a written petition sent to the House Committee on Ethics dated Feb. 5, Colorado House Representative Jared Polis argues:

"Members of Congress and covered employees are already required to report certain asset holdings over certain amounts, including reporting any commodities holding over $1,000, a Member or covered employee should report any virtual currency holding as they would report any other commodity, such as gold."
