Digital Currency Group, a cryptocurrency investment firm, registers a representative to lobby on its behalf.

According to a disclosure form made on August 15th, Digital Currency Group (DCG), which owns over 150 crypto firms, has authorized Julie Stitzel, its vice president of public policy, to advocate on the company’s behalf before the U.S. federal government.
According to the filing, DCG supports blockchain and bitcoin firms by using its network, insights, and funding.
The action signals that DCG will engage in increased lobbying activities, especially in the lead-up to the 2022 mid-term elections. Prior to joining DCG in May, Stitzel served as the head of bitcoin policy at Block’s Cash App.
Digital asset management Grayscale, one of DCG’s major companies, recently launched a legal appeal against the SEC for denying its application for a spot bitcoin ETF and has been expanding its legal team in preparation of the verdict.
DCG could not be contacted right away for further information about the lobbying registration.
