Protecting Texas’ Leadership in Web3 Innovation: A Call to Action Against Federal Regulatory Overreach

The Texas “economic miracle” continues to thrive, with the state solidifying its position as a leader in Web3 innovation. According to the latest data from the Texas Work Commission, Texas experienced the largest increase in nonagricultural employment in the country in the first quarter of this year. This growth is supported by a robust ecosystem of developers and miners attracted by the state’s pro-crypto policies and deregulated power market.

One company that has taken advantage of Texas’ favorable environment is Consensys, which relocated from New York to North Texas last year. Consensys, built on Ethereum blockchain technology, saw Texas as the optimal home for its core offerings due to the state’s business-friendly policies and stable regulatory environment.

However, this progress is now under threat from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which is attempting to reclassify ether, the digital commodity that powers Ethereum, as a security. This move could have far-reaching consequences, potentially rendering Ethereum unusable in the United States and stifling innovation in the blockchain space.

In response to the SEC’s actions, Consensys has filed litigation against the commission and is calling on the state of Texas to join in the fight against federal regulatory overreach. The outcome of this battle will not only impact the future of blockchain technology but also the state’s position as a leader in Web3 innovation.

As Joseph Lubin, co-founder of Ethereum and CEO of Consensys, urges Texans to support efforts to preserve the state’s leadership in this cutting-edge industry, the future of Web3 innovation in Texas hangs in the balance.
