Looks like U.S. Congressmen will have a date with a blockchain on Valentine's Day. This is reported by Coindesk.

Two subcommittees of the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space and Technology – for Oversight as well as Research and Technology – are holding a hearing, called "Beyond Bitcoin: Emerging Applications for Blockchain Technology," on Feb. 14 at 10 a.m. EST.

The list of those, who are going to visit Congress on a Valentine's Day:

  • Frank Yiannas, vice president of food safety at Walmart
  • Charles Romine, direcor at National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
  • Jerry Cuomo, IBM vice president of blockchain
  • Chris Jaikaran, Congressional Research Service analyst
  • Aaron Wright, associate clinical professor at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law

At the moment, it is not clear enough if the hearing will be broadcast live.

The above-mentioned subcommittees regulate legislative and investigative actions into the science and technology fields. It is worth noting that the Subcommittee on Research and Technology has the power to allocate funds to developing projects. It is still not clear what's the goal of the hearing will be.

He said that the new platform will make institutional trade instruments available to a wide range of crypto traders.

Our immediate focus is on cryptocurrency and enabling every investor to utilize the exclusive tools, like smart order routing, that only institutions previously could access. When we built top tier infrastructure for traditional markets, our team solved many of the same problems facing cryptocurrency exchanges today. We are excited to bring a higher caliber of technology to cryptocurrency investors everywhere.
