On this episode of the Bitcoin Magazine Podcast, host Christian Keroles sits down with Congressman Warren Davidson of Ohio! Congressman Davidson burst into the Bitcoin scene in 2019 when in a congressional hearing he mentioned the difference between Bitcoin and “shitcoins” officially putting the term Shitcoin in the official congressional record. Warren has a history in the military and then as an entrepreneur which has greatly shaped his world view and his understanding of the current fiat monetary and banking system. Congressman Davidson recognizes the importance of sound money in a free society and why Bitcoin is well aligned with American values.
Congressman Davidson is on the financial services committee in congress and is working hard to create more regulatory clarity for crypto in general in an effort to make America as competitive as possible for Bitcoin businesses to thrive. Congressman Davidson is acutely aware of how difficult it is today for a Bitcoin business to operate in the United States because of the lack of clarity and the purposely negligent attitude from the SEC regarding a Bitcoin ETF. Davidson is the coauthor of the Token Taxonomy Act which is supposed to bring an enormous amount of clarity and recognition of crypto to the US legal system. The act is still in early stages and Warren is fighting to get it the attention that it deserves.
Please enjoy this wide ranging and fascinating conversation with Congressman Warren Davidson.
