“Regulatory and policy work continues to be important to our economic development,” said Lee Bratcher, founder and president of the texas blockchain council .“Crafting light touch regulatory frameworks that protect consumers and provide clarity for businesses will help us grow smartly and quickly.”
Legislative, policy and regulatory leaders from both sides of the aisle, including Andrew Yang, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, CFTC Commissioner Summer Mersinger, Texas State Senators Angela Paxton and Royce West, and Texas State Representatives Tan Parker (Sen.-Elect), Gio Capriglione and John Bucy, provided attendees with thought-provoking and unprecedented insights on the policy front. Sen. Paxton and Rep. Parker authored legislation - H.B. 4474 - during the 87th Texas Legislative Session that recognizes cryptocurrency. The Virtual Currency Bill, recognizing the legal status of virtual currencies, was signed last June by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, thanks in large part to efforts from the Texas Blockchain Council and supportive legislative champions. The law amends Texas' Uniform Commercial Code to provide infrastructure to the commercial laws surrounding blockchain and digital assets. Moreover, the move formally defines virtual currencies and offers individuals and businesses a legal framework for crypto investment and custody.
“More than any other state, Texas is bringing leadership to the blockchain space,” said Bratcher.
