The US Senate will discuss the impact of the Crypto-currency on elections

News ,

The hearing will be chaired by South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham. There have not been any details regarding the composition of the meeting.

The official website of the US Senate Legal Committee published a report on the June 26 hearing entitled “Protecting Elections: Investigating One-Day Firms and Digital Currencies as Foreign Intervention Opportunities.”

The hearing will be chaired by South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham. There have not been any details regarding the composition of the meeting.

Recall, previously in the US officially allowed political campaigns and committees of political actions to accept donations in bitcoin, comparing the cryptocurrency with shares, bonds and other similar assets. However, there are limits on the volume of donations in the cryptocurrency.

So, at the meeting, probably, among other things, the legitimacy of collecting donations for the campaign of former adviser Barack Obama, Brian Ford, who collected over $ 200,000 in crypto-currencies when he ran for Congress, will be discussed, among other things.

It will not be surprising if the meeting will discuss the issues of such a plan, because to this there are preconditions and precedents.
