Perianne Boring is the founder and president of the Chamber of Digital Commerce, a trade association aiming to promote the use of digital assets and blockchain technology. She is a former congressional staff member and the former author of Forbes’ The Boring Bitcoin Report. She is also an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, where she teaches classes on blockchain technology.
Headquartered in Washington, The Chamber of Digital Commerce was created by Boring because of her belief that bitcoin needed advocacy in Washington. The association works directly with policymakers and regulatory agencies to educate leaders about the ecosystem and technology. There are over 140 organizations that have become Chamber members, including Nasdaq, USAA, Wells Fargo, Bitmain, Coinmarketcap, block.one and Bloq. Furthermore, the association includes over 30 lawyers and law firms acting as committee members, including DLA Piper, Morrison Forster and Greenberg Traurig.
In 2016, Boring organized a round table discussion with 15 members of congress and blockchain industry leaders in Washington, D.C., spearheading conversations about the emergence of blockchain on Capitol Hill.
