Lummis, who has championed pro-crypto legislation, emphasized the importance of educating lawmakers on digital assets. On May 29, she shared,

“When I came to the US Senate, nobody knew anything about digital assets, no one knew the difference between Bitcoin (BTC) and alternative coins. So we’ve worked hard to educate members of the Senate.”

Alongside Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and others, Lummis established a financial innovation caucus and a regulatory framework for crypto. She highlighted Bitcoin’s growing role as a store of value and means of exchange, driven by global adoption and inflation concerns. She also noted the rising awareness of Ethereum and its potential to support numerous applications.

Key US Crypto Regulation Developments

The US crypto market has witnessed significant strides. The SEC approved spot Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs, while pro-crypto bills advanced, signaling a favorable regulatory environment. The House of Representatives passed the Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century Act (FIT21) with bipartisan support.

Additionally, the Senate voted to overturn Gary Gensler’s Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 121 (SAB 121), which eases the way for banks to become crypto custodians. As the US Presidential elections approach, the narrative around crypto continues to evolve, with optimism high for further integration of digital assets into the economy.

Senator Lummis dedication to advancing crypto legislation showcases a promising path forward, emphasizing education and regulatory clarity. Her efforts, alongside recent legislative successes, suggest a future where crypto plays a pivotal role in the US economy.
