Stablecoin issuer Circle is aiming to ramp up is messaging as the U.S. Congress considers new legislation for the sector. The company on Thursday posted a new 2-minute video, in which it argues that the country needs robust regulation if it wants a digital dollar or USD stablecoin to become the global reserve currency.
"We are working hard to engage and educate DC on the issues, as this likely goes from a HSFC bill into law that’s being considered by the entire House of Representatives coming out of the summer recess," Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire told The Block.
"We are at a key moment in development of U.S. policy, with expected upcoming votes in Congress, and we are trying to help present a simple and compelling case to economic and policy leaders around the importance of getting stablecoin laws done in the U.S.," he continued.
The firm's message will be seen on various social and digital outlets, he added.
