United States News

The United States has maintained the highest gross domestic product in the world since 1871, making it a critical player in the evolution of commerce, finance and technology. The U.S. has been home to some of the most successful, long-standing crypto exchanges and other businesses in the industry. 

Over 10 years later, the role of Bitcoin (BTC) in the U.S.’s evolution into digital finance and commerce is still unclear, as U.S. cryptocurrency regulation is still inconsistent, hazy or, at best, done in a patchwork fashion across the 50 states and other territories. 

Stay tuned as Cointelegraph covers all the important updates and stories regarding the regulation, maturation and evolution of the crypto space.
