Government Affairs for the Digital Age

Focusing on blockchain and cryptocurrency-related policy, we bridge the gap between regulators & industry players.

Top Priority

Clarifying Regulation

Regulators continue to issue guidance on how cryptocurrency fits into existing law.

DAA informs companies about relevant updates and helps them understand what the changes may mean for the industry.

Reducing Risk

Advancing Innovation

Overregulation can stifle innovation. Instead, we advocate for smart policy to help it flourish.

DAA helps educate regulators and lawmakers about cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, dispelling myths along the way.

Extensive Data

DAA maintains the largest privately-owned database of government records about cryptocurrency and blockchain.

Over the years we’ve meticulously gathered, sored, and analyzed thousands of relevant documents, assessing each record for sentiment analysis, favorability, and more.

Valuable Insignts

We know which lawmakers and regulators are friendly towards the industry, and how lobbying efforts affect policy outcomes.

Collaboration is Key

To ensure sensible regulations, we believe working with regulators and lawmakers instead of against them is imperative.

Getting It Right First

We support the “ask permission not forgiveness” approach as opposed to the tech industry’s “move fast and break things” style.

Addressing The Issues

Our goal is to dispel myths, address their concerns, and answer the hard questions about cryptocurrency’s rocky past and current potential.

Above Board Standards

As a matter of principle, DAA does not support non-compliant ICOs, skimpy compliance standards, or skirting the law. 

Mission-Driven Actions

What We Support

As this technology scales, governmental interest will continue to grow.

DAA supports sensible, well-informed policy similar in scope to existing laws related to fiat currency and capital markets.
