Florida Smart Contract Legislation

Florida

Brookings Grade: Organized

Bills

HB1379

Passed: 23 June 2017

HB1379 defines virtual currency broadly to include a currency that is not of a country. It uses this definition to target people who use Bitcoin to hide funds gained illicitly.

H1357

Failed

H1357 would have allowed the electronic credentialing of motor vehicles. It also would have bolstered blockchain by stating contracts are not invalid merely because they contain a smart contract element.
