On Thursday, April 25, Blockchain Capital’s General Counsel, Joshua Rivera testified before Congress during the House Financial Services Committee Subcommittee on Digital Assets, Financial Technology, and Inclusion’s hearing: “The Future of Digital Assets: Identifying the Regulatory Gaps in Digital Asset Market Structure.” Joshua explained both the incredible opportunities and immense challenges that the digital assets industry, and the blockchain technology that underpins it, presents to an innovative American marketplace. His message highlighted that the digital assets industry wants to work with our elected representatives in Congress and regulators on developing appropriate market structure regulation for this burgeoning field of technology. 

Joshua is a board member of the Blockchain Association, which is committed to educating policymakers and regulators in Washington. Their goal is to promote the development of reasonable legislation that encourages the advancement of blockchain technology. Through Joshua’s testimony before Congress and close collaboration with legislators, the Blockchain Association, together with Blockchain Capital, is optimistic that crypto will strengthen the United States’ strategic position in global finance and technology.
