*In addition to blockchain and Bitcoin, our overview addresses other distributed ledger technology and cryptocurrency-related topics 

Our overview contains a collection and summary of every U.S. state law, bill and guidance related to the areas of DLT/Blockchain & Cryptocurrency/Bitcoin for all fifty states. We provide detailed state-by-state explanations on all DLT & cryptocurrency related state actions in a structured data format (in MS Excel), which allows for easy searches and filters by state, scope, and subject. We designed this content to be intuitive to users, but we provide a User Guide which provides important information. A few topics covered in our overview include: money transmitter law and cryptocurrency businesses, taxes and requirements on cryptocurrency businesses, the legality of smart contracts, status of ICOs under state securities laws and more! Updated by our team in Summer 2018.

This content can be used to draw insights such as:

  • Where are cryptocurrency businesses required to apply for a license?
  • What direction are states going in regarding the legality of smart contracts?
  • Which states are particularly active in addressing Bitcoin? Which states are silent? (The answer may surprise you!)
