Denelle Dixon tweeted: “I was honored to be invited to brief Members of the House Financial Services Committee FinTech Task Force last week about the uses of blockchain in financial services. Wanted to share my prepared remarks and takeaways with the Stellar ecosystem.”
KMSmithDC tweeted: “Great to have @BlockchainAssn member @DenelleDixon with @StellarOrg participate in this discussion!”
Denelle Dixon expressed that she loves speaking about the blockchain technology and also speaking to the Congress about how and why it is important. She stated that by doing this she wanted them to have confidence in the technology, particularly in the Stellar Technology.
She stated that she focused her time in front of the Task Force taking about the role that Stellar and blockchain are playing in in payments and more particularly in global payments and remittances.
Sydney Ifergan, the crypto expert tweeted: “Stellar Lumens (XLM) Denelle Dixon was recently able to make a presentation to the regulators and policy makers. This tiny step will likely count for miles.”

Denelle Dixon stated that the Committee was receptive to what she was expressing. She also stated that she felt that they were optimistic about the idea of creating an efficient global payments system using blockchain technology.
