State Blockchain Report Card

Measuring State Legislatures’ Support for Blockchain Technology

State legislators are recognizing the economic and consumer opportunities that blockchain technology can bring and are introducing legislation supporting its growth. Some efforts were quite progressive, while others were well-intentioned, but could have benefitted from additional guidance from the industry.

Recognizing this upward trend, the Chamber published its Legislator’s Toolkit for Blockchain Technology in December 2018 before most legislative sessions started in January to provide states with recommendations that would benefit the growth of blockchain technology. In fact, the introduction of state legislation has exploded, from 64 bills introduced in 2018, to 237 and counting as of May 16, 2019.
