Digital Asset & CBDC Legislation Trends - Jim Mason

Many countries and states are looking at options to regulate digital assets and CBDC ( Central Bank Digital Currencies ). In some cases, digital asset legislation is now law. Digital asset legislation may include: CBDC, cryptocurrencies, stable coins, NFTs ( Non-fungible tokens ) and other forms of digital assets as well as the exchanges, marketplaces, custodians and service providers where they are sold and traded. These bills and laws can have a major impact on how these digital assets are used, valued and traded now and in the future for investments, commerce and payments.

For each category of digital assets, we'll: define the asset type, use cases, privacy and key related legislation sections

Some of the legislation we'll cover includes: 

  • MICA - the Markets in Crypto Assets proposal passed by the European Parliament
  • The State of Wyoming Digital Assets Legislation in force since 2019
  • The US Executive Action on Responsible Development of Digital Assets ( March 9, 2022 )
  • the US Lummis-Gillibrand Digital Assets Bill

Don't miss this session. Bring your questions and ideas.

Charter and FAQ


The activities of the Public-SIG include:

  • identifying related use cases, current pilots, and proofs of concept;

  • sharing stories of successes, failures, opportunities, and challenges;

  • exploring cross-cutting concerns like security, privacy, and identity in government contexts;

  • identifying existing or needed common critical software components that would serve the particular needs of the public sector;

  • identifying conferences or other opportunities to connect face to face, as well as submit talks or present as a group at an event.

This activity will be automatically recorded in email archives when conducted over the mailing list. When this activity is conducted in other media, it will be captured as notes or other formats and posted to the list (so it is archived), or possibly to the Hyperledger Wiki. This activity might also be turned into reports from the Special Interest group (recommendations to the rest of Hyperledger, for example) or other kinds of content (blog posts, content for publications, etc).

The Public Sector SIG is prohibited from performing or engaging in any form of lobbying or attempts to influence government policy-making or regulatory processes. It is also not intended as a platform for procurement of services.

Work Products

The initial work product will be a set of documents which analyze the space of government and regulatory use cases for blockchain technology. This will be an inventory of example use cases which captures common government processes, which may suggest applications that are built or could be built using software being developed at Hyperledger. The public-sector-sig may also host in-person meetings intended to accelerate the Special Interest Group's mission.
