The Chamber of Digital Commerce, a blockchain advocacy group based in Washington, D.C., announced Wednesday former Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney has joined the group’s board of advisers.

In a press statement emailed to CoinDesk, the blockchain advocacy group also said Visa, Goldman Sachs and Six Digital Exchange (SDX) have joined the group as executive committee members. 

  • In the statement, the advocacy group’s founder, Perianne Boring, said that diverse leadership with experience in both the public and private sectors was needed to assure the future of blockchain technology in the United States.
  • Mulvaney, a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives, served as the acting White House chief of staff between December 2018 and March 2020. He was later appointed as the U.S. Special Envoy for Northern Ireland in May.

She also said that having served as head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Mulvaney would also help the chamber understand how regulators could be looking at such technology.
  • “I believe U.S. advancement of blockchain development and policy is crucial to our continued success as a global leader in technological evolution,” Mulvaney said in the statement.
