Fundamental analysis: US Representative reintroduces Token Taxonomy Act for a third time

Davidson’s bill was first introduced in 2018 and focuses on exempting specific crypto and digital assets from federal securities laws, according to the press release.
In particular, the legislation seeks to amend the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1940 and if passed, U.S. regulators would gain much more clarity on in what manner to implement new securities laws that are related to crypto assets.
“Currently, a patchwork of laws and regulations creates confusion and even hostility to various blockchain businesses,” the press release says.
This is the third time Davidson has reintroduced the act, which was co-sponsored by Representatives Ted Budd (R-N.C.), Darren Soto (D-Fla.), Scott Perry (R-Penn.), and Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.). The bill was previously introduced in 2019 but was not successful.
“The window is closing,” Davidson emphasized in the release.
“If we don’t act quickly, the United States will be left behind. Other countries have found ways to regulate blockchain projects and, in doing so, have made themselves more attractive to entrepreneurs,” he added.
The U.S. will be able to make sure blockchain-related innovations occur locally and benefit its citizens only in an “appropriate regulatory environment”.
