Our Policy Priorities Include:
National Action Plan for Blockchain
We issued a call to action for the U.S. government to adopt a coordinated approach to be a leader in blockchain technology. Governments around the world are recognizing the importance of this technology and actively developing strategies to gain the advantages it offers. We should too.
Digital Asset Mining
There is an opportunity for the United States to lead major technological innovation through digital asset mining, which will strengthen national security, spur economic growth, and accelerate a transition into clean energy.
Anti-Money Laundering / Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML / CFT) Compliance
Compliance with AML obligations is of utmost importance to our members. We are engaged at the multinational and federal levels to promote law enforcement objectives in a way that utilizes the compliance benefits this technology offers.
Regulatory Clarity for Digital Tokens
Tokens offer an incredible expansion of the way we think of assets by digitizing those assets and offering ways to transfer them in secure, transparent, and efficient way. This expansion also creates regulatory challenges for those seeking to develop business platforms. We are actively educating and proposing solutions to regulators and policy makers to help promote a predictable legal environment for those engaging with digital tokens.
Guidance for Digital Asset Taxation and Accounting Standards
The need for clear tax guidance and the absence of accounting standards is a mission critical issue for companies seeking to invest and innovate in this technology.
Legislative Tracking & Advocacy
Legislators are recognizing the economic and consumer opportunities that blockchain technology can bring and are introducing legislation supporting its growth. We actively engage with policy makers and track and comment on legislation to promote innovation with blockchain technology.
Promoting the Use of Blockchain in Business and Working with Innovators to Grow the Industry
Businesses interested in implementing blockchain technology require more information about its capabilities. These much-needed resources for innovators and entrepreneurs are a critical step in expanding the growth of blockchain technology throughout the broader business community.
