We are New York City peer community of civil servants, residents, and companies inspired by the potential of blockchain based technologies for government. We gather monthly to learn and collaborate towards a future in which governments in New York and beyond are optimally leveraging blockchain improve government transparency, efficacy, and efficiency.
Recently, New York State became the first state in the nation to create a cryptocurrency task force to study how to properly regulate, define and use cryptocurrency. In Jan 2019 NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo, signed into law THE DIGITAL CURRENCY STUDY BILL, A8783B/S9013.
The members of the task force, appointed by the Governor, Senate and Assembly, are to submit reports by December 15, 2020. The members will include stakeholders such as, technologists, consumers, institutional and small investors, large and small blockchain enterprises and academics.
We will also announce special guest presentations!
Our monthly NYC GBA Global Chapter events will discuss the NYS Cryptocurrency Task Force with Featured Members of the NYS Task Force on Cryptocurrency. RSVP Today!
