With the debate over the infrastructure bill, policymakers were caught off guard. Few in Washington anticipated Bitcoiners’ ability to respectfully and relentlessly express our disdain toward unnecessary regulation that is likely to have unintended consequences.

Never before has such a multidisciplinary, multigenerational and multiparty ​​group come together to show Congress the power of a decentralized community. Policymakers are now on notice that the Bitcoin community is a force to be reckoned with in public debate. Bitcoin was created to separate money from the state. But few foresaw the potential for bitcoin to motivate folks to lobby their government for positive change, let alone an almost successful, unanimous consent agreement.
