Digital currency and blockchain technology returned to Capitol Hill last week during a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce committee’s subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade. The high-level hearing was part of the committee’s “disrupter series,” which gives committee members an opportunity to learn more about nascent technologies with the potential to radically change how we do business. Coin Center executive director Jerry Brito testified in the hearing. Written testimony from Jerry and all other witnesses, as well as video of the entire hearing, can be found on the Energy and Commerce Committee website. Full video of the hearing is available here.
