Tomorrow, the US Congress intends to hold two separate hearings on cryptocurrencies, the prospects of their possible use as money, as well as regulatory issues. Both hearings will be held in the Capitol (Congress building in Washington), and will be broadcast in real-time.

Recall that in the last six months the legislature of the United States conducted two hearings related cryptomnesia. Theme of the March hearing was “the Study of cryptocurrencies and markets ICO”, and that took place in June and the financing of terrorism.

On July 18, scheduled a new meeting of the Committee on financial services of the house of representatives of the Congress, which would focus on cryptocurrency as a new form of money. According to published on the official website of the Committee Memorandum, Committee members would examine “the extent to which the US government needs to consider the cryptocurrency as money, as well as the potential use of digital currencies in the domestic market and globally”.

It is noteworthy that on the same day, another triptolemou will be discussed by the representatives of the other American legislative body — the U.S. Senate Committee on agriculture. At the request of President Michael Conway (Michael Conaway), this hearing aims to “clarify the opportunities for digital assets, and regulatory issues associated with this new asset class“.

It should be noted that before some members of the legislature started talking about cryptocurrency as a new asset class, a similar opinion was expressed by members of the judiciary of the United States. So last month, the U.S. Supreme Court referred to the cryptocurrency as a new form of money and a potential successor to Fiat money.
