Fintech lobbyists are increasingly concerned with cryptocurrency

Of the 80 companies that reported lobbying for fintech in the first quarter of 2019, more than half cited bitcoin and blockchain among their main ongoing concerns, Roll Call writes.

Overall, they spent more than $42 million for fintech-related lobbying. However, Roll Call states, the data appears to be somewhat skewed as a portion of the $16.4 million spent by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce relates to issues unrelated to fintech, for instance, trade and infrastructure.
