WASHINGTON, DC – The National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) today sent a letter to Rep. Sylvia Garcia (D-TX) to engage in the dialogue regarding the Managed Stablecoins are Securities Act.

“The Managed Stablecoins are Securities Act would unintentionally damage the process of early adoption of blockchain technology. Imposing an overly broad definition of ‘stablecoin’ will inadvertently sweep in numerous startup projects, though they are likely not the intended targets of the legislation,” said Bobby Franklin, President & CEO of NVCA. “We look forward to working with Rep. Garcia to develop an effective regulatory regime for blockchain technology that gives the United States an opportunity to be a leader in this field while improving investor protection.”
