The cryptocurrency industry’s self regulatory body, the Digital Asset Association (Global DCA) has enlisted the aid of Public Affairs Consultants, Atlas Crossing. The announcement comes as Global.DCA prepares to ramp up it’s federal outreach efforts in the US state of Washington.
Self-regulation-centered cryptocurrency advocacy group, the Digital Asset Association (also referred to as Global DCA,) on Monday, the 19th of July, announced that it has retained the services of public affairs consulting firm, Atlas Crossing. The consulting outfit brings with it, a decades-long bi-partisan track record, which will aid Global DCA in bridging the gap between the digital assets industry, and policy makers.
“Our partnership with Atlas Crossing greatly enhances our ability to align with legislative and regulatory priorities while developing standards for the industry,” said Matt Lisle, Chairman of the Interim Board of Global DCA. “Atlas Crossing has a successful track record managing broad coalitions to advocate for smart regulation for the benefit of all stakeholders, and that expertise will better position Global DCA as a credible industry advocate in Washington, D.C. at a critical time for the industry.”
Global DCA was formed to help guide the development of the digital assets industry within the bounds of a regulatory framework geared towards developing a positive public opinion, regarding cryptocurrencies. The association’s broad set of members – from exchanges and fintech firms, to individual market participants, technology providers and media outlets – all put a voice towards broad, and robust, self developed regulations.
With a veteran firm like Atlas Crossing fighting in Global DCA’s corner in the North American nation’s legislative capital, the digital asset industry may have a louder voice speaking for it on Capitol Hill.
“Our firm looks forward to representing Global DCA in Washington and helping to build its brand as a responsible leader and standard setter in the digital asset and cryptocurrency industry,” expressed Sean Joyce, Founder and CEO of Atlas Crossing, regarding the appointment. “There is certainly a lot of attention in Washington surrounding the digital asset space, and now more than ever policymakers need to hear from responsible actors like the members of Global DCA who are focused on fostering financial innovation and inclusion, market integrity, and ultimately building public trust,” he further stated.
