Crypto advocates in all 435 Congressional Districts want to make their voices heard

Tl;dr: More than 25,000 Americans across the United States – and from all 435 Congressional Districts – have signed up to be crypto advocates with #Crypto435. From Mansfield, Ohio to Havre, Montana, advocates want to make their voices heard on the future of crypto policy. Today, Coinbase is announcing two additional ways to get involved. First, join us on Friday, March 24, 2023 to launch Crypto435 Live, an opportunity to hear from Brian Armstrong, Coinbase Founder and CEO, about the policy issues that are important to you and ask questions. Second, sign an open letter to urge Congress to pass pro-crypto legislation.

Just over two weeks ago, we launched Crypto435 to grow the crypto advocacy community and share tools and resources to make it easier for anyone to get engaged. Today we can confirm that more than 25,000 crypto advocates across all 435 Congressional Districts have signed up to make their voices heard on crypto. That means Americans in small towns like Mansfield, OH and Havre, MT, big towns like Reading, PA, and big cities like Houston, TX want to make a difference. 

While there’s a lack of regulatory clarity for crypto in the United States, it’s clear the U.S. has an active and engaged community that is eager to see pro-crypto policies at the state and federal level. That’s why today we’re excited to launch two new initiatives to make it easier to get involved.

First, Crypto435 Live is an opportunity to hear from people who are living and working in crypto policy. Crypto advocates like you can engage in a dialogue about the policy issues that are important to you, and learn more about crypto policy. Our first event will be on Friday, March 24 at 11am PT on Twitter Spaces. Kara Calvert, Head of US Policy will moderate a conversation with Brian Armstrong, Coinbase Founder and CEO and Faryar Shirzad, Coinbase Chief Policy Officer on the current state of play in Washington, DC. 

Second, we’re encouraging anyone who cares about the future of crypto to sign an open letter to Congress urging them to pass pro-crypto legislation. Policymakers should support the new, innovative, and disruptive technologies that are changing the world today. Your voice can be part of this call to action.

It's more important than ever to get involved. Elected – and unelected – officials in Washington, DC and your state Capitol are making decisions today that will impact how YOU engage with the crypto economy. #Crypto435 will provide the tools to learn about the issues, contact your state and federal representatives, and advocate for the pro-innovation policies that will protect consumers, national security, and keep crypto innovation in the United States. It's up to all of us to make sure that our representatives understand the importance of crypto and the benefits it can bring to individuals and businesses alike. 

Sign up to be part of the #Crypto435 campaign and sign the open letter today.
