3 – The United States Congress has a new bill to classify cryptoassets

A congressman presented a bill that classifies digital assets called the “Crypto-Currency Act”.

In this bill, three types of classification are proposed:

  • crypto-commodities which are economic goods or services stored on blockchain;
  • crypto-currencies represent blockchain-based products such as stablecoin;
  • crypto-securities are all blockchain-based debt, equity and derivative elements.

Each of the asset types fall into a regulator category.

What is certain remains to be seen whether the proposal will enter into force.

This phase will help developers understand the errors or bugs that may arise during the operation of the actual blockchain.

The development proceeds from the roadmap, and the network will always run smoothly.
