BANKS WORST FEAR SPONSORS BITCOIN EDUCATION DAY
The Chamber of Digital Commerce hosted the inaugural Bitcoin Education Day on Capitol Hill yesterday. More than 32 members of the Bitcoin community flew in from across the country to educate Congressional legislative aides as to the merits of the Bitcoin ecosystem. Fact-sheets were delivered to every member of the House as the crypto-community made its initial foray into the nation’s capitol.
Steve Stockman (R-TX) of the House was the Member sponsor of the event. Stockman is a vocal member of the Bitcoin community through his allegiance to the chamber and his outspoken criticism of the BitLicense regulation proposal out of New York. According to Rep. Stockman ‘Perianne Boring and the Chamber of Digital Commerce have staged a breakthrough event, taking Washington’s grasp of Bitcoin up to a much higher level.’
