A European Parliament part conveyed an ardent discourse this week to a persuasive advisory group on buyer assurance as a feature of an at last fruitful battle to step toward executing new measures identified with blockchain tech.

Antanas Guoga, an EU parliament member who represents Lithuania, called blockchain a “perfect technology” as he talked before the Internal Market for Consumer Protection Committee, which is measuring whether to propel a proposition for a new virtual currency task force.

Guoga went on to encourage members to do their own investigation of bitcoin, telling the committee:

“I’m sure a lot of us politicians haven’t got any bitcoins at the moment and we’re trying to make laws for something we don’t understand. I would suggest everyone to get some bitcoins and really learn about the system. It’s a huge leap forward and a huge opportunity.”

 

The board of trustees allegedly went ahead to pass the measure with a ” huge majority ” of member support.

 

 

Push for task force

The measure asks the European Commission, the official arm of the European Union, to either make another “team” for observing virtual currency improvement or extend a current team to cover the innovation.

Ulrike Trebesius, pushed for a global standard of direction for the innovation, adding that notwithstanding supporting the production of the team, the board of trustees had likewise chosen to bolster direction on the advancement of other computerized record advances for non-budgetary applications.

“We have achieved a technology-friendly solution to virtual currencies…Europe needs innovation and we need to keep the innovators in Europe and enable them to reach commercial success,” Trebesius said.

Votes were thrown the day after the recently shaped European Digital Currency and Blockchain Technology Forum (EDCAB) held a roundtable arrangement for policymakers and industry pioneers in the European Parliament. The non-profit association spent quite a bit of this current week connecting with policymakers in front of the advisory group vote.

From here, the EU Parliament Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs will consider whether to support the proposition too. A vote on the proposition will be hung on 26th April.
