Texas Laws Get an Upgrade to Support Bitcoin Owners

Texas cities may soon have their own crypto-friendly laws, as the Texas House of Representatives recently introduced a bill that could boost the local bitcoin economy and protect the rights of individual bitcoin owners in the state.

Texas is known for being a great place to do business, and bitcoin owners may soon have a lot to be thankful for. Here’s what you need to know:

What’s In The Bill?

The proposed bill would provide greater legal protection to individuals and companies dealing with digital currency in Texas. Among other things, it would:

  • Set up regulations for digital asset exchanges
  • Restrict local and state governments from charging taxes on digital asset transactions
  • Establish civil protections for users
  • Protect consumer information

The bill also proposes that digital currency businesses be subject to fewer restrictions than banks or payment processors.

What Does This Mean For Bitcoin Owners?

If passed, the bill would create a much friendlier legal environment for bitcoin owners in Texas.

Many individuals have struggled to use the cryptocurrency due to the limited guidance from government agencies and the lack of legal protection for digital asset owners. Additionally, many businesses have been discouraged from working with customers who use digital currency.

However, this bill would provide bitcoin owners with greater civil protections and expand the state’s economy as local businesses become more likely to accept cryptocurrency payments.


It’s clear that Texas is working hard to become a crypto-friendly state. As always, we’ll keep you updated with any new developments. In the meantime, we hope that other states follow suit and create laws that give digital currency owners the same rights as other citizens!
