Tech Intersect #75: Ping the Prof- Will PA Be the Next State to Create a Blockchain Regulatory Sandbox?
Show Notes

In this episode of Tech Intersect, I share my testimony summary from PA State Rep. Napoleon Nelson's July 19th House Democratic Policy Committee hearing "Blockchain and Cryptocurrency and preparing Pennsylvania for a digital future." The Committee was short on time and I wasn’t able to deliver my full prepared remarks so I’d like to take the opportunity to do that in this episode. The full hearing replay and my written testimony are linked below.

I commend Rep. Nelson for convening this hearing to explore the potential benefits, challenges, and drawbacks of integrating blockchain technology and crypto assets into the public, private and charitable sectors of the Commonwealth and welcoming blockchain-based and crypto startups to the Commonwealth. It is essential for government officials to identify and to consider the myriad local, national, and international policy issues associated with achieving the optimal balance between cultivating a robust, competitive and transparent regulatory environment that also supports and encourages innovation in this fast-paced digital world. This is particularly important at this moment in history as we emerge from the economic ravages of the pandemic, especially for those citizens historically and systemically marginalized and disenfranchised in the current financial and technology sectors.


Embark on a 3-day intimate (Aug 13-15), workshop-style course that includes live coaching, well-curated content and an Accreditable digital certificate of mastery so you can upskill in the competitive workforce with credentials that set you apart from the pack in the new economy. 

Regulation is an essential component of a healthy, thriving crypto ecosystem. And the legal implications of crypto, DeFi and NFTs sometimes seem as volatile and unpredictable as the price of Bitcoin. And speaking of Bitcoin, it will likely be the world reserve currency at some point, and will certainly be a national reserve to some countries. 

So building your digital cash wealth on a solid legal foundation is critical to creating and cultivating sustainable generational wealth with crypto assets. This course helps you make it all make sense so that you can buy, create and leverage crypto assets in a compliant and confident way.
