US Advocacy Group Calls for National Action Plan on Blockchain
February 20, 2019 / Yogita Khatri
The Chamber of Digital Commerce, a blockchain advocacy group, has called for the U.S. government to implement a national strategy for blockchain technology. The organization released its recommendations for the plan on Wednesday, urging the government to promote and support the blockchain industry through clear and supportive public statements. So far, most public statements from the U.S. government on cryptocurrencies have been in the form of warnings and enforcement actions, according to the chamber. Instead, there is a need for “clearly articulated statement of support for the private sector” on blockchain for the benefit of government, business and consumers, it said.
