The State of Wyoming enacted 13 trail-blazing blockchain bills during its 2018/2019 legislative sessions garnering international attention.
The Wyoming Blockchain Task Force will host its third meeting of the year as part of the Wyoming Blockchain Stampede. The Task Force is a bi-partisan group whose job is to draft proposed blockchain bills for consideration by the Wyoming legislature. It consists of three members of Wyoming’s House of Representatives, three Wyoming Senators, and three civilians who were appointed by Governor Mark Gordon. At this meeting the Task Force will review drafts of proposed legislation for consideration during the 2020 legislative session and solicit feedback from interested members of the public.
Wyoming has a rich history of Breakin' Through!
Wyoming has a long record of being first: The first woman to vote in the US, the first female governor, the first national park, and the first LLC law. And it blazed a trail in blockchain, becoming the first elected body to recognize utility tokens as a new form of property that is neither securities nor money under Wyoming law. Wyoming offers blockchain businesses its most favorable tax, business entity and privacy protections.
