For those of you who lobbied hard and were active helping to stop bitlicense in the various U.S. States where it was introduced, thank you. You helped us close out 2018 in a positive way by preventing another state from becoming “bitlicensed.” Thanks also to those working to help challenge and invalidate the NY and NC bitlicenses, and thanks to those working to ease restrictions currently in place in Washington state.
Stay vigilant in the years ahead.
