1/ UGH--HOPES DASHED! #tokentaxonomyact proposes 2 great things but the rest of it needs a lot of work. The $600 tax exemption & 1031 (like-for-like) exchange provisions are great. I wish the bill stopped there! The definition of "digital token" got so watered down that there's..
2/ ...not even a "taxonomy" left in the #tokentaxonomyact anymore! 4 states have now passed similar bills that define a taxonomy (#virtualcurrencies, #utilitytokens & #securitytokens) & bills are moving in 5 more states--that's 9 states in only 15 months! But this bill not only..
3/ ...jettisoned that taxonomy, it now claims federal preemption over those bills. (I think that section is probably unconstitutional. The feds clearly have preemption regarding securities, but digital tokens are expressly not securities! If they're not securities, then they're..

1/ IMPORTANT-I'd stayed quiet abt this until now. The below letter was just publicly released by the #Wyoming #Blockchain Task Force. It responds to 2 letters the Uniform Law Commission sent to WY “strongly urging” it to withdraw its v impt... #blockchain wyoleg.gov/InterimCommitt…
2/ bill, SF125, which is now law. I’m bringing attention to WY's response bc it addresses a debate that should be in the open, plus it should make clear #Wyoming is seriously willing to go to bat to attract #blockchain tech to the state AND defend a strong & basic principle—that
3/ laws should recognize property rights for INDIVIDUALS who own financial assets. We shouldn’t have to own them thru an intermediary in order to gain the best legal protections. The Task Force letter responded to letters dated Jan 29 & Feb 6 sent by the Uniform Law Commission to

1/ TWEETSTORM about #Wyoming’s BIG REVEAL. This is long & info-packed, so buckle in. My native state is about to do bigger things for #blockchain, & the sector is about to pay Wyoming back big-time. Win-win! @Tyler_Lindholm @SenatorDriskill @TraceMayer @ForbesCrypto
3/ New bill 2 parts. 1-Digital asset custody via #SEC #CustodyRule wld create first true #QualifiedCustodian for digital assets (for investors who by law can’t self-custody). 2-Defines property rights for digital assets—doing something HUGELY IMPT for #bitcoin/virtual currencies

1/ Maybe, but here’s a YUGE prob for securities #tokens: do you need a securities brokerage account just to use the token? Most brokers & their custodians prob won’t integrate with a #blockchain, which means these incumbents can kill the industry simply by not integrating &...
2/ ...thus impeding the token’s use value & preventing it from ever building network effects. If every token must be a security, then @SEC_News should allow wallets to hold securities tokens for short-term, transactional purposes outside of securities brokers. Not doing that...
3/ ...would effectively give the incumbent securities industry the right to block securities tokens & the token industy would just leave the US. That would be anti-competitive, bad policy & just morally wrong. I hope the @SEC_News will get this policy right. #utilitytokens
