Congress blockchain meeting: There is a lot of news getting pumped out into the world right now. In the crypto space, however, all eyes are on the Congressional subcommittees that are meeting today, to discuss blockchain.
Congress Blockchain Meeting
Today, a pair of Congressional subcommittees will meet to discuss blockchain technology. The session will focus on the role the technology plays in supply chain management. There will be similarities to the meeting that took place in February, but, according to Rep. Roger Marshall, Tuesday’s meeting is going to focus less on the science and more on new technologies emerging and improving in the blockchain sector.
The session is meant to be informative, but Marshall says questions and discussions are welcome. As for the people at the meeting, the chairman of the House Science Committee stated that Tuesday’s session will have numerous “experts in intellectual property,” as well as experts in shipping, logistics, and cybersecurity.
Other Meetings in the Crypto and Blockchain World
Yesterday, a group of SEC and CFTC officials was scheduled to meet to discuss whether cryptocurrencies should be ruled like stocks. The crypto at the center of this was Ethereum (ETH). Now, however, reports have surfaced today that this meeting never even took place.
Hopefully, Congress doesn’t also plan on fooling the world by canceling this blockchain meeting. The technology has vast potential, and the more people to meet to discuss the technologies future, the better. That being said, a recent Gartner survey came out last week, which stated that while most companies are aware of the technology, the majority don’t actually plan on integrating it. This contradicts the opinion most people have of the technology.
Stay tuned for the outcome of today’s blockchain meeting. Do you have any idea of how it’s going to go? Let me know.
