Domestic Cryptocurrency News

Wyoming Takes Another Pro-Blockchain Stance: The Cowboy State continues to quietly build themselves up as a cryptocurrency and blockchain hub in the United States. After passing a series of blockchain-friendly bills in February, the legislative committee recently added another piece of blockchain legislation to the list. The new bill, receiving a vote of 13-1 for, allows banks in the state to provide services for blockchain assets.

The bill is apparently the product of a “Blockchain Task Force” committee. The purpose of the committee was (and is) to discover the challenges that blockchain entrepreneurs face.

For those that know, or live, in Wyoming, this ruling should come as no surprise. The state was dubbed the Equality State as the first state allowing women to vote and has consistently passed progressive legislation.

Survey Says…Crypto!: According to a recent survey by job platform Humans, 29 percent of U.S. freelancers would like to receive at least part of their income in cryptocurrency.
