Crypto News: In a significant move applauded by the broader crypto community on Twitter, US Senator Cynthia Lummis on Saturday took to social media to announce her ongoing efforts to establish a regulatory framework that would enable individuals and companies to own and trade digital assets within the United States.
Lummis Aims For Crypto Regulation In US
Working alongside Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Lummis has been working on a revamped bipartisan effort to introduce comprehensive regulations for cryptocurrencies. This legislative endeavor is expected to gain traction on Capitol Hill later this year, paving the way for a much-needed framework for the rapidly evolving digital asset space.
While highlighting the fact that the opposition successfully thwarted the inclusion of a 30% digital asset mining tax in the recent debt ceiling deal, Lummis emphasized that the fight to establish a clear regulatory landscape for the crypto sector is far from over.
We successfully prevented @POTUS‘ 30% digital asset mining tax from being included in the debt ceiling deal but the fight is far from over.
I am working on a regulatory framework that will allow individuals and companies to own and trade digital assets in America.

Crypto Bill Expected Ro Address Token Definitions
Earlier, during a digital assets symposium, Senator Gillibrand stated that the revised version of the bill would be more detailed, particularly in terms of defining tokens and the processes required to obtain them. According to the senators, this move would aim to provide the much-needed clarity and address existing ambiguities in the cryptocurrency landscape.
According to recent reports, the forthcoming bill primarily seeks to define cryptocurrencies while potentially removing the “security” tag associated with them. Additionally, the proposed legislation will supposedly impose a universal ban on algorithmic stablecoins although further deliberations are necessary to determine the entities authorized to issue stablecoins and the requirements associated for their USD reserves.
