A non-binding resolution calling for a national technology innovation policy that includes supportive language for digital currencies and blockchain technology has been passed by the US House of Representatives.

The bill, which was written by Illinois Representative Adam Kinzinger, and sponsored by Representative Tony Cardenas from California, was passed on Monday.

Though non-binding, the measure is perhaps the most significant to emerge from Congress to date on the subject of digital currencies and blockchain technology.

Recently, the House Committee on Energy and Commerce discussed blockchain technology, and comments from supporters on the debate floor indicated that there was genuine interest in the issue among House members.
