The recent bill H.R. 3684, also known as the infrastructure bill, has been hotly debated in the Senate. The bill requires massive amounts of funding, and one of the ways lawmakers are trying to secure those funds is through cryptocurrency brokers. Specifically, the bill would require brokers who deal in digital assets to report customer information, though many have argued that the way it defines “broker” in this sense is too broad.
As it makes its way into the House of Representatives, many people in the crypto-trading space are uncertain about what the bill means for their industry.
