It's Time to Get Serious About Bitcoin.
The cryptocurrency industry has long lobbied for minimal regulation in order to avoid “stifling innovation.” But recent events have raised pressing questions for policymakers — calling into question the merits of a light-touch approach to digital asset policy:
How 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 bi-partisan policy discussions as we parse fact from fiction and confront the stark realities of the cryptocurrency industry.
