Today, as part of a new initiative by the Chamber of Digital Commerce PAC, members of the United States Congress will receive a $50 campaign donation in Bitcoin to educate policymakers on the potential of blockchain technology.

Crypto for Congress is an initiative to provide hands-on experience with cryptocurrencies for all 535 members of Congress, beginning with a $50 bitcoin donation from the PAC Chamber of Digital Commerce will enable them to set up a wallet, receive and submit their first cryptocurrency.

The initiative was established on the premise that, when someone uses it for themselves, the most resonant process of learning occurs with all technologies. In addition to the initial $50 Bitcoin donation, the Chamber of Digital Commerce is offering members from all parties comprehensive public online education training, a toolkit, and tools to help them participate directly in the cryptocurrencies’ ecosystem.

Perianne Boring, Founder and President of the Digital Chamber of Commerce said that now is the right time to learn about and accept cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology for all Congress members. The best way to do that is to set up a digital wallet and start the blockchain journey.

US Rep. Tom Emmer said:

“The lightbulb moment is now. Crypto for Congress brings an opportunity for our entire Congressional community to join this generational shift in finance and technology. By embracing the digital asset movement, we have an opportunity to take a significant step forward to ensure America’s leadership position in the future of the global economy.”

Blockchain Bills Approved By Congress

Although blockchain creation and regulation have lagged in the United States, the House of Representatives passed two major blockchain initiatives last week.

After being approved in the House of Representatives, two bills introduced by Representative Darren Soto — the Digital Taxonomy Act and the Blockchain Innovation Act — are now on their way to the Senate.

The two acts have been revamped into the Consumer Protection Technology Act (H.R. 8128), a bill directed earlier this month by the Consumer Product Safety Commission to examine AI applications.
The Bill is now heading for a final vote in the Senate.
