Debates around blockchain and distributed ledger-enabled tools, such as cryptocurrencies and smart contracts, have picked up as policymakers study the issues and craft public policy. President Biden’s recent executive order on digital assets, along with Republican calls for legislation on cryptocurrencies, have focused attention on how public policy should be structured for this fast-growing area. Partisan fault lines are not yet set, nor are they obvious. This means the scope for potential bipartisan agreement on a policy framework is potentially wide.
On March 30th, the Bipartisan Policy Center will explore blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and other distributed ledger-enabled tools to help people better understand the relevant terms and issues in a clear and easy to understand manner.
