Canadian House of Commons Discuss Cryptocurrencies
March 20, 2018
Yesterday the Standing Committee on Finance FINA of the Canadian House of Commons met about cryptocurrencies.
Jonathan Hamel from Academie Bitcoin is an excellent representative of the cryptocurrency community. He answered all questions clearly and simply so the committee members could understand the new and abstract concepts.
The Standing Committee was interested, even fascinated by the cryptocurrency landscape. They had questions and concerns especially about the use of cryptocurrencies for crime and terrorism. In the end, they were excited about the possibilities of cryptocurrencies but are still cautious.
Well worth the watch, here’s the relevant excerpt from the meeting.
