Get The Facts On Bitcoin
Bitcoin is under fire for its alleged contributions to the climate crisis and terrorist financing. Meanwhile, the cryptocurrency industry continues to push Congress for light-touch regulation to avoid "stifling innovation".
Recent events have prompted heightened scrutiny from lawmakers:
Did Hamas leverage cryptocurrencies to finance its attacks on Israel?
Is China exploiting American bitcoin mining operations to conduct espionage on key military bases?
Do crypto mixers help criminals and terrorists conceal transactions from authorities?
Are most cryptocurrencies simply unregistered securities?
Does Bitcoin mining threaten the current administration's climate goals?
Questions like these underscore the urgency for policymakers to critically examine the impact of Bitcoin and other digital assets.
Join us for a day of bipartisan policy discussions as we parse fact from fiction and confront the stark realities of the cryptocurrency industry.
