Keeping in line with his views, Steve Stockman had proposed a bill in 2014 to raise awareness and build consensus across the Bitcoin community on virtual currency related government regulations. The bill named “Cryptocurrency Protocol Protection and Moratorium Act,” or CryptPMA was designed to keep the government agencies from interfering with bitcoin and the bitcoin economy.
