The main change that the statesmen wish to bring is to include cryptocurrency firms in the act to ensure enhanced protection to these organizations. In a statement to the public, Blackburn explained that some bad actors were using crypto as a way to mask their illegal activities and avoid accounting. The Senator further added: The Cryptocurrency Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act will update existing regulations to address this misuse directly. It will provide a voluntary mechanism for crypto companies to report bad actors and protect cryptocurrency from dangerous practices.
