The association is open for all that want to air their views and ideas. This is the only way founding members believe it would be able to grow. The adoption of the blockchain technology has been going on in various corners of the world. Both blockchain and cryptocurrency industry leaders have introduced different associations to facilitate that. They have also partnered with various regulators to come up with comprehensive policies.
So Far, So Good
On the 27th of November, ten financial and technology companies formed ADAM – the Association for Digital Asset Market. It was formed with the sole intention of creating a code of conduct for the entire cryptocurrency market. A Washington DC-based blockchain association was also formed in September 2018. This was a collaboration of several US-based crypto and blockchain firms including Coinbase. This body is mandated with representing the mainstream blockchain firms.
These are companies operating within the political setup. The main aim here is to address the issue of policy as well as the classification of the crypto in the US tax law. There was also a great news made by Banxico in September. Banxico is the Bank of Mexico based in Mexico. It had this new regulation to all the banks and crypto exchanges in Mexico. They will only operate once they have been permitted by a bank.
