The crypto industry is still young. To amplify + protect the good work being done to increase financial inclusion, spur tech innovation & build open crypto networks, we formed @BlockchainAssn to pursue pro-growth, pro-consumer policies.
@coinbase was a founding member & we’re disappointed to see them leave at a critical time for the industry. However, we believe that it is important to abide by our established neutral membership criteria + honor majority Board opinion.
We’ve made real progress over the past 2 years: helping to curb legislation that would have harmed stablecoins + working to support the intro of policy proposals such as the Token Safe Harbor & Token Taxonomy Act. And there’s more to come.
The Blockchain Association believes that bringing all of the major companies, investors, and innovative projects together from this young and growing industry is the only way to achieve meaningful and lasting policy and regulatory goals.
@BlockchainAssn members remain active and engaged in the policymaking process. We’ve come this far as a group & we look forward to building on our recent wins, welcoming new + established pro-crypto voices to the DC conversation.
