Bitcoin (BTC) is Money: Wyoming Passes Bill to Recognize Cryptocurrency

In the midst of an uneventful week for cryptocurrency, with coin prices still hovering at their lowest point for the new year, the state of Wyoming is nearing the transition period to officially recognizing cryptocurrency as a legal form of tender. According to a new bill, which was first presented on Jan. 18, 2019 and passed Jan. 31, The Cowboy State will begin to recognize all forms of cryptocurrency under the same regulations and attributions as that of fiat money. While the bill was passed with relatively little fanfare, it may be looked back upon in the timeline of cryptocurrency evolution as a more landmark event.
