Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) announced that he will lead the first Cryptocurrency Town Hall, celebrating the innovators who lead the charge in developing cryptocurrencies and encouraging politically-engaged voters to participate in the growing digital asset transformation this campaign season.
“The United States has always been a world leader in technology and innovation. The development of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology are the next evolution of innovation that will permeate every aspect of our society. We’ve worked hard to educate federal officials – elected and unelected – on the importance of creating a regulatory and legal environment that allows these new technologies to take root and thrive. This event is designed to keep cryptocurrency, blockchain technology, and all of the innovations in this space at the forefront of the discussion as we head into the election this November.”
Partnering with the Chamber of Digital Commerce PAC, the Crypto Town Hall will take place virtually on August 20 at 12:30 pm ET. It will feature Representative Emmer and leaders from the blockchain industry, including Jeremy Allaire, CEO of Circle, Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple, Guy Hirsch, USA Managing Director at eToro, Stephen Pair, CEO of BitPay, Matthew Roszak, Chairman and Co-Founder of Bloq, and others as they discuss ways to keep the United States on the cutting edge of innovation.
“Congressman Emmer is a leading advocate for one of the most transformational industries in technology and finance. His vision and awareness of the tremendous positive innovation that blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies are bringing to people, businesses and communities is critical in Washington, especially during this election season. This Town Hall event will be the first time our industry and voters across the country can come together to show the growing level of support and enthusiasm for cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology solutions,” said Perianne Boring, President and Founder of the Chamber of Digital Commerce and Treasurer of the Chamber’s PAC.
