Cynthia Lummis, the incoming Republican Senator who’ll bring Bitcoin to the US Congress, has hired Tyler Lindholm, Wyoming's “Crypto Cowboy” as the State Policy Director of Wyoming.

 

Lindholm, who is also Chief of Ranching Operations at BeefChain, a food chain supply company that promises “blockchain verified beef & sheep,” will begin his new job on January 3, 2021, a little under two weeks before President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.

 

Lindholm, formerly Wyoming State Representative and co-chair of the Wyoming Blockchain Task Force, passed several pro-crypto pieces of legislation to encourage crypto businesses to the state, among them the Utility Token Act and the Digital assets-existing bill.
