A historic event in the crypto sector. The US Congress does it

The digital asset sector is experiencing significant evolution, with the U.S. House of Representatives approving the Cryptocurrency Act FIT21. This move marks a tremendous step forward in enhancing regulatory clarity in the United States, under the Financial Innovation and Technology Century Act.

President Joe Biden issued a statement regarding the imminent vote, expressing that while they do not support the legislation, they will not exercise veto power against it if it reaches the president’s desk. This acknowledgment highlights the broad support the bill has received from both the Republican and Democratic parties, bolstering hopes for providing a comprehensive regulatory framework for this burgeoning sector.

The passage of the FIT21 Cryptocurrency Act in the House of Representatives signifies a significant development in recent years. It reflects a response to the stagnation witnessed in the U.S. digital asset market due to stringent regulatory measures enforced by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). It is important to note that the fate of the bill remains uncertain upon reaching the Senate, but discussions are underway to initiate new legislative proceedings regarding this growing sector.

Interest in the digital asset industry is growing within the political arena, with former President Donald Trump recently announcing his willingness to accept cryptocurrencies in fundraising efforts, while President Biden has indicated his readiness to work with Congress to establish a “balanced regulatory framework.” Regardless of the fate of the bill in the Senate, current developments suggest that this sector will remain a focal point of political interest in the foreseeable future.
