LARAMIE — The state’s Blockchain Task Force will meet in Laramie Sept. 19-20 to discuss potential legislation that could further shape Wyoming’s landmark blockchain laws. If enacted, the laws under consideration could change the landscape for real estate, banking and energy, among other industries.

The premier legislation stemming from the task force passed in the 2019 legislative session, allowing the establishment of banks that could take custody of cryptocurrency assets much like a digital safety deposit box. This year, the task force is looking at refining that measure while banks ogle the state, but also at other forward-thinking measures that member Caitlin Long said could reshape several industries.
