How to Buy Ecash

Buying ecash in United States

Buying ecash in United StatesThe United States is progressively regulating the crypto sphere. However, there seems to be some split in approach to cryptocurrency. On one hand, some states continue to pass laws which aim to stimulate the economy, attract investment, or encourage tech development, while others have either passed restrictive crypto asset and investment regulations, or have suggested to do so. The state of New York, for example, requires companies to acquire "BitLicenses" in order to operate virtual currency businesses, and even issued a "greenlist" of accepted virtual currencies. On a federal level, there is a large amount of crypto regulation from various bodies, meaning lots of overlapping jurisdictions and different opinions on crypto. Although U.S. crypto banking seems undeveloped, it is making slow progress. A large crypto exchange, Kraken, stated that it became the first U.S. digital asset company with a bank charter, recognized under both federal and state law, in 2020.

eCash, formerly known as "Bitcoin Cash ABC" was created in a fork of Bitcoin Cash. It features a Proof of Stake consensus layer called Avalanche, as well as the possibility for network upgrades without forking. 8% of all newly mined eCash goes into a fund that supports the further development of the network. Half of this goes to the current developers and the other half goes to a Governing Council that helps to provide consensus around future upgrades.
