On the off chance that endorsed, the bill would urge the Congress to wipe out tax collection on all bitcoin exchanges, drawing one little stride nearer towards recognizing and receiving bitcoin as a cash. More to that, it would mitigate weight set by the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on bitcoin and cryptographic money organizations like Coinbase.
Already, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong uncovered in an announcement that the organization was asked for to conform to a nonsensical John Doe Summons, requesting the organization to relinquish touchy individual and money related data of a great many its clients.

This heavy handed approach by the IRS punishes one of the good guys,” said Armstrong.
Since the recently presented cryptographic money assess charge takes out expense on little bitcoin exchange given the introduce that bitcoin is an advanced cash, not exclusively a place of refuge resource and a long haul speculation apparatus, it will likewise likely trigger a request toward bitcoin as a proficient and vigorous settlement arrange.
