Texas Commercial Laws to Recognize Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies
Texas lawmakers have approved Bill HB4474 that recognizes Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies under their commercial law.
The approval by the Senate comes a few days after the House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted in support of what the bill proposed.
Following this nod, the content of the bill will now become law after Governor Gregg Abbott appends. However, it would more likely be a formality for him, considering his favor and preference for cryptocurrency regulations.
Earlier this year, the CEO of Ripple Bradley Garlinghouse, who has been sued by the U.S. SEC for allegedly selling unregistered securities, complained of the absence of clarifying regulations in the country.
For these mistakes, Brad argued, the U.S. would likely trail other countries like Japan and some of SE Asia economic powerhouses who have defined rules guiding the sphere.

A new report from Chainalysis, a blockchain analytic firm, shows that Bitcoin whales bought $3 billion of BTC when prices slumped last week.
