The Texas Blockchain Council has announced that it is going to host the Texas Blockchain Summit for the 2nd year in a row.
The 2021 Summit was a Huge Success and a Boost for the Virtual Currency Bill
In 2021, the event caught by surprise the industry experts, regulatory parties, and policymakers, after attracting close to 1,000 attendants who converged at the AT&T Conference Center to listen to the most influential speakers in the blockchain and crypto space.
The event will be held on 17th and 18th November 2022 at AT&T Hotel and Conference Center in Austin, Texas. The primary mission of the Texas Blockchain Council is to make Texas the hub for Bitcoin and blockchain innovation.
The meeting unites experts and policymakers, allowing them to look through the lens of the state that is working towards bringing blockchain leadership into the new crypto space. In June 2021, the efforts of the Texas Blockchain Council and the pro-crypto legislators, culminated in the state’s governor, Greg Abbott, signing the Virtual Currency Bill into law.
The Virtual Currency Bill appreciates the legal status of digital currencies. It also amended the Texas’ Uniform Commercial Code to create the right framework for commercial laws on digital assets and blockchain applications.
Another notable thing is that the bill defined virtual currencies and provided corporations and individuals the legal framework for crypto custody and investment.
