On July 11, 2017, the Chamber of Digital Commerce hosted the Congressional BlockchainEducation Day. The world’s largest blockchain trade association sought to promote the benefits of the relatively new technology to members of the House and Senate. Working alongside representatives from over sixty Chamber member companies, blockchain advocates spent the working day on Capitol Hill enlightening lawmakers about the technology underpinning a global digital currency awakening.
In a brief announcement on Monday, Chamber of Digital Commerce founder and president Perianne Boring stated:
“We are delighted that so many of the Chamber’s members are flying in to Washington, DC to meet with and help educate our legislators and their staff on this breakthrough and potentially multi-trillion-dollar technology. We’re honored that participants will have the opportunity to hear directly from Members of the Congressional Blockchain Caucus.”
