Congressman Jared Polis is scheduled to deliver remarks at an event for bitcoin ATM company Robocoin at the United States Capitol where they will demonstrate their hardware. While companies visiting with congress is nothing new, the wild, wooly world of bitcoin makes this definitely an interesting development.
The company will bring its hardware to a capitol office where it will demonstrate the gear and hold a Q&A. Rep. Polis will speak as well.
“We’re honored to be the first Bitcoin company welcomed with open arms to demo on Capitol Hill,” said Robocoin CEO Jordan Kelley.
The meeting will allow Robocoin to tell its side of the bitcoin compliance story and allow congressfolks the opportunity to buy a little bitcoin of their own. Writes Kelley in the invitation:
The event will be held on April 8, from 4:00-7:00 p.m. in the Rayburn House Office Building. It is an interesting wrinkle in the long bitcoin story and should be, at the very least, one of the first steps towards general acceptance of the currency.
