Hillary Clinton Promises Support for Blockchain Technology

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton announced her policy goals for technology and innovation, including public service blockchain applications, last week.

“We must position American innovators to lead the world in the next generation of technology revolutions – from autonomous vehicles to machine learning to public service blockchain applications – and we must defend universal access to the global, digital marketplace of ideas.”

According to a recent CoinDesk article, the Clinton campaign also indicated that there will be a push for reduced regulatory barriers for startups and entrepreneurs by challenging state and local governments to identify, review and reform legal and regulatory obligations that protect legacy incumbents against new innovators.
