Just before the holidays, we had the chance to meet with U.S. Congressman Tom Emmer of Minnesota.
Congressman Emmer is a leading legislator at the U.S. Capitol working on issues of finance. As a member of the House Committee on Financial Services and co-chair of the Congressional Blockchain Caucus, he also happens to be one of Congress's biggest supporters of crypto asset technology.
"I want to break down barriers," he said during our call.
He also wanted to learn as much as possible, asking questions about DeFi and discussing DeFiner with our CEO Jason Wu.
Our thanks goes out to Congressman Emmer and his staff for taking the time to connect. We're excited for the future of this industry, knowing he and others like him at the U.S. government are working to help it thrive—such as the recent positive developments in the OCC stablecoins decision.
Lastly, being headquartered in Minnesota ourselves, we're proud to represent this state and to strengthen the crypto community in this region of the country.
