Digital asset miners are no stranger to using innovative sources of energy. @JAI_Energy in WY is a prime example of a company working with oil & gas producers to make a positive impact through bitcoin mining. The EPA must study all environmental impacts before regulating.

Wyoming banks are at a standstill as they wait on an opaque process inside the Federal Reserve. This is unacceptable and it’s time for the Fed to give us some answers about why we’re not regulating digital assets. pic.twitter.com/WSGz6dt3s8

When it comes to regulation, it’s the wild west for the digital asset industry. It's difficult to hold institutions to account when there are no clear guidelines for the regulation of digital assets. The Lummis-Gillibrand Framework provides clarity to stakeholders & regulators.

Last August, the Senate faced its first challenge in regulating digital assets during the infrastructure bill debate. We didn’t provide the clarity industry needed then, but Lummis-Gillibrand fixes the broker definition and brings our financial system into the 21st century.

Digital asset miners in WY are hooking their computers up to natural gas flares. This provides the power they need to mine their digital assets, and also keeps greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere. Lummis-Gillibrand recognizes that innovation and encourages more.

More than 34 million Americans report owning some form of digital assets. We’re regulating this 21st century technology with 20th century regulations. It’s time for an upgrade, and the Lummis-Gillibrand plan accomplishes that.
