The Michigan House of Representatives has passed a bill, HB 4102, on April 9 that would include cryptocurrencies in criminal codes regarding illegal actions for financial gain.
Michigan lawmakers have voted to introduce amendments to various SECtions of the Michigan Penal Code, specifying that cryptocurrency would be included in provisions relating to money laundering, embezzlement, credit card fraud and financial transactions involving the proceeds of a criminal offense.
The legislation also prohibits the collection of cryptocurrency — or any currency — for the fighting, baiting or shooting of an animal.
State Rep. Ryan Berman told the Detroit News that the bill was inspired by a case of a dog-fighting ring, wherein the organizer was prosecuted, but not individual participants, as they placed their bets using cryptocurrency, which was not expressly prohibited under the law.

Market researcher at SeekingAlpha, Victor Dergunov, believes now is the time to get into Bitcoin — before it’s too late.
After a 15-month long bear market, bitcoin is starting to show signs of bottoming. For one, the BTC/USD price today is trading over 40 percent higher compared to its mid-December yearly lows.
Therefore, Dergunov says now could be “an excellent time to build your exposure to bitcoin.” Particularly, after what he calls a “formidable rally” and technical similarities to previous bull-run setups. Therefore, he believes that:
…This is very likely only the beginning of Bitcoin’s next bull market.
甲骨文（Oracle）区块链产品开发副总裁Frank Xiong在福布斯首席信息官峰会上表示，他预测未来几年，50％到60％的公司将使用区块链技术。目前甲骨文有超过100个客户使用其区块链平台来追踪物品。 Xiong认为，目前已经过了人们认为区块链可以解决一切的阶段，因此人们已在什么对其商业模式有好处方面变得更加现实。
The blockchain has become something of a buzzword over the past year or so, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a viable solution for many businesses. In fact, one expert believes the made-famous-by-Bitcoin technology will be used by upwards of 60 percent of companies.
This projection comes from Oracle’s group vice president of blockchain product development, Frank Xiong, who told Forbes CIO Summit that he predicts “between 50% and 60% of companies will use blockchain in the next few years.”
Xiong knows what he’s talking about, too, since Oracle has more than 100 cuSTOmers using its blockchain platform for the purpose of tracking items.
That said, the company vice president is also realistic in his assessment of the technology when he notes that it really isn’t the be-all-end-all solution for business. “We’re past the stage that blockchain can cure everything,” he told the American business magazine, “so people are becoming more realistic about what’s good for their business model.”
美国国会议员Warren Davidson周二重新引入了“代币分类法”，旨在将代币排除在美国证券法之外。Davidson在一份声明中表示，该法案如果获得国会批准并签署成为法律，将向创新者发出“强烈信息”，即“美国是区块链技术的最佳目的地”。 据悉，该法案去年由议员Warren Davidson和Darren Soto首次提出，旨在使加密货币和其他数字资产免受联邦证券法的约束。
Lawmakers are making a fresh attempt to give cryptocurrencies a clearer legal standing in the U.S.
U.S. Representative Warren Davidson reintroduced the Token Taxonomy Act on Tuesday, saying in a statement that the bill, if approved by Congress and signed into law, would “send a PoWerful message” to innovators that “the U.S. is the best destination for blockchain technology.”
The bill, first introduced last year by Reps. Davidson and Darren Soto, seeks to exempt certain cryptocurrencies and other digital assets from federal securities laws, allowing individuals to more easily trade or transact with select coins.
The act would amend the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1940, granting regulators such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) clarity on how they may enforce securities laws surrounding cryptocurrencies.
While the SEC has released staff-level guidance explaining how it might verify whether token sales are securities offerings, it remains unclear how cryptocurrencies that are not being used for fundraising might be classified.
