Cred and Universal Protocol Alliance Join Blockchain Advocacy Coalition (BAC)
Cred, the leading provider of crypto-backed lending with over $300 million in credit facilities and the Universal Protocol Alliance, creator of the Universal Protocol Platform, today announced that they will join the Board of the Blockchain Advocacy Coalition to provide education and support to state and federal legislators and regulators.
“We’re pleased to welcome Cred and the Universal Protocol Alliance to our Board,” said Ally Medina, Executive Director of BAC. “These pioneering blockchain organizations are at the cusp of innovation. By working closely with policymakers and regulators, our board members will help develop thoughtful policy initiatives that support innovation in the blockchain industry and benefit the U.S. economy.
Blockchain Advocacy Coalition has taken the time to build relationships in Sacramento with policymakers, regulatory bodies and office holders. California has half of the nation’s cryptocurrency and blockchain industry, a share that will increase as more positive legislation passes. The state is uniquely well positioned to lead the nation on regulation that supports blockchain innovation, and we are here to make sure it’s done right. Thoughtful legislation passed here can serve as a model for the federal government and other states.”
“We’re pleased to be working with BAC to help policymakers understand and advocate for crypto and blockchain friendly policies,” said Dan Schatt, Co-founder of Cred and the Universal Protocol Alliance. “Our mission is to offer a more equitable, transparent and inclusive set of financial services through blockchain technology. Helping Sacramento and Washington understand the policy implications with this new technology will ensure that it can be prioritized accordingly.”
“California has always been a place for innovation and opportunity, and SB 838 shows how we can use technology to increase consumer protection and help prevent cases of fraud,” said Senator Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys). “That it was signed into law is a great testament to the work being done around the state by folks like the Blockchain Advocacy Coalition to advance this rapidly growing technology.”
