What is Coinbase Stand with Crypto Alliance?
In order to advocate pro-crypto legislation, Coinbase established the Stand With Crypto Alliance, which is a separate NGO. This pioneering advocacy group aims to bring together the diverse crypto community around supporting legislation.
The Alliance wants to design a legal system specifically for digital assets. This is a response to the increasing legal disputes over asset classifications between cryptocurrency companies and organizations like the SEC. Clearness is required, as evidenced by victories like the Ripple verdict.
"With more than 50 million Americans holding a digital asset, crypto is bigger than Coinbase. Today, with the launch of the Stand with Crypto Alliance, the crypto community will be unleashed as a core constituency in the legislative process. In particular, the Stand With Crypto Alliance will leverage the underlying technology of the blockchain to help organize the community into a powerful voice advocating for policies that will update our financial system and support economic empowerment. The Alliance is the nation’s first ever independent and onchain advocacy organization, powered by and for crypto supporters," said Coinbase.
