Today in an open letter from the Texas Blockchain Council, the following was announced:
After witnessing recent events in Washington D.C. surrounding the passage of the bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, it is apparent that the time has come to get the Texas crypto community more involved in advocating for our ability to build the future of value unimpeded.
One way to do this is to educate lawmakers about blockchain and cryptocurrency. The Texas Blockchain Council has been at the forefront of this work in Texas, putting together a Legislators’ Toolkit for Blockchain Technology and helping shape several pieces of legislation, two of which made it to the Governors’ Desk for signature this year.
Another way of ensuring that our community is represented in government at all levels is to financially support those lawmakers who are open to innovation and enthusiastic about crypto and the future of finance. For this reason, we are re-activating the Texas Blockchain Committee, a nonpartisan Political Action Committee whose sole purpose is to support candidates friendly to blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. The Texas Blockchain Committee PAC operates independently from the Texas Blockchain Council, but shares the same policy objectives for our state.
You might not know but The Texas Blockchain Council has been at the forefront of putting together a Legislators’ Toolkit for Blockchain Technology and helping shape several pieces of legislation; two of which made it to the Governor's Desk for signature this year. Lee Bratcher and Natalie Smolenski have been instrumental in making sure Bitcoin stays guarded, safe, and alive here in Texas.
Thriller Bitcoin has already made a donation to the Texas Blockchain Committee PAC. We encourage you to do the same, these contributions will support lawmakers in Texas. As they say in the post, none of your donations will go towards salaries, as everyone who works to support the Texas Blockchain Committee is a volunteer. The Texas Blockchain Committee (the PAC) only takes donations from individuals not corporations. As a Bitcoiner you know Bitcoin wins long term regardless, but having the lawmakers in Texas on our side makes everything easier.
Let's do the right thing and support Texas Blockchain Committee PAC. We have to defend the Bitcoin Mecca that is Austin. This is the last stand for our fight for freedom. And honestly, worse case scenario, Texas becomes its own Bitcoin sovereign state.
