Coin Center’s Director of Research, Mr. Peter Van Valkenburgh, testifying in the U.S Senate Hearing on “Exploring the Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Ecosystem.”

Neeraj Agrawal, Communications Director of Coin Center, shares why he works on crypto policy, "Because I knew that this technology is transformative and would incur the attention of DC. This was a neglected area when Coin Center started. We are proud to have stepped in to fill the gap and give builders the space they need to make things like Gitcoin.”

"Gitcoin has become the easiest vehicle for cryptocurrency users to support us directly in a crypto-native manner. The matching campaigns have been a big motivator for donors. I can't overstate how important Gitcoin is to us."

Coin Center joined Gitcoin Grants in 2020 and has raised over 1 million dollars on the platform from 11k+ community contributions and matching funds.

Today, cryptocurrency privacy and freedom are at risk in Washington D.C as the space continues to gain attention and scrutiny. Coin Center's advocacy and representation are more important than ever before.
