Bitcoin and the American Dream. Bitcoin for Policy Makers. Bitcoin Tech Talk #271
If you haven’t heard, we have launched a Kickstarter for a Bitcoin policy book. The Kickstarter ends on Tuesday midnight Eastern Time, so please hurry if you would like to back us. In this edition of the newsletter, I wanted to summarize what we wrote about as a way to give you an idea of what we’re trying to do.
The book was conceived as a way to educate policymakers. As we learned over the summer, legislators and policymakers don’t know very much about the Bitcoin community and the provisions that got passed in the Infrastructure bill clearly did not take this growing constituency into account. As they found out, this is not a quiet constituency and there was quite a bit of confusion in DC over what Bitcoin users wanted.
