Take notes Colorado, California just made Bitcoins legal money

February 21, 2014
 
Colorado should be taking notes from California who became the first state to classify virtual currencies as legal money with the passage of bill AB129 yesterday.
 
According to California Senate Banking and Financial Institutions Committee, “This bill makes clarifying changes to current law to ensure that various forms of alternative currency such as digital currency, points, coupons, or other objects of monetary value do not violate the law when those methods are used for the purchase of goods and services or the transmission of payments. Modern methods of payment have expanded beyond the typical cash or credit card transactions. “
 
Colorado Bitcoin Attorney, Benjamin Yablon commented that “the pace of change surrounding Bitcoin is astounding. Making Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies legal and safe is the first step to their widespread adoption. They are giving a green light to Bit-entrepreneurs to sink their money and time into California's economy.”
 
The Banking and Finance documents state “These point systems effectively operate as currency allowing the consumers to buy a retail item or pay for some type of service. Many communities across the United States and in California have created "community currencies" that are created by members of a community in conjunction with merchants who agree to accept the alternative currency.”
 
Yablon sees California’s passage of AB 129 as an opportunity for a new generation of monetary innovation. “We have a vibrant tech sector here and far fewer state wide economic problems.” Colorado doesn’t seem to be far behind creating its own legislation to address virtual currencies. Yablon is currently working to draft a similar bill for Colorado. “In my law practice I have several ways to help achieve the same kind of confidence building measure that a bill like this delivers. Step one is to make the investment in Bitcoins safe”
 
With the unanimous approval AB 129 the bill will be heading to the Governor’s desk. “When mainstream consumers and investors really start to feel confident in Bitcoin as a physical object that is housed in an insured cold storage facility, widespread adoption is inevitable.” Let’s hope Colorado embraces virtual currencies with the same progressive thinking and excitement that California is demonstrating.
