Major Crypto Vote in Washington Next Week: Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies Brace for Impact

The world of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies is on the edge of a major shift as a game-changing vote is set to take place in Washington next week. The recent surge in the Bitcoin price, climbing back towards $70,000 per Bitcoin, has not only boosted the prices of Ethereum, XRP, and other cryptocurrencies but has also caught the attention of lawmakers and industry leaders.

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey’s plan to blow up the Bitcoin price and Shark Tank billionaire Mark Cuban’s warning to President Joe Biden over crypto have set the stage for a landmark crypto vote in the U.S. House of Representatives. The vote will be on the Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century Act, known as Fit21, which aims to promote the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) as a major crypto regulator and define the oversight of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the crypto market.

The Crypto Council for Innovation, a coalition of major crypto companies and organizations, has emphasized the importance of passing this legislation to accelerate the growth of blockchain technology and digital assets, protect national security, and maintain the U.S.’s leadership in financial innovation. Some crypto companies have even threatened to leave the U.S. due to the lack of clear regulations in the industry.

The recent overturning of a crypto accounting policy by Congress, despite President Biden’s promise to veto it, has signaled a potential deepening divide in the Democratic party. With President Biden having around ten days to veto the bill or let it pass into law, the future of crypto regulation in the U.S. hangs in the balance.

Senator Cynthia Lummis, a Republican from Wyoming and a crypto supporter, has criticized the bill as a disaster that does not protect consumers. However, the approval of Wall Street spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in January has added another layer of complexity to the debate.

As the crypto market braces for this crucial vote, the outcome could have far-reaching implications for the future of Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, and the entire cryptocurrency industry. Stay tuned for more updates on this developing story.
