The United States Department of Commerce is calling for submissions on how it can establish a framework that will bolster American economic competitiveness in digital assets including crypto and stablecoins.

The Department of Commerce (DoC) intends on publishing a series of 17 questions in a request for comment through the International Trade Administration. The request will be published in the Federal Register on Thursday.

The questions pertain to the DoC’s efforts to develop a framework for challenges to the growth of American economics regarding digital assets, as requested by President Joe Biden’s Executive Order.

The unpublished request for comment from the Department of Commerce.

The questions will cover a range of topics related to crypto businesses in the U.S. such as views on how regulations can enhance competitiveness and what obstacles business owners currently face. It will also cover digital asset mining, likely in relations to Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH). One asks:

“What, if any, is the future role of digital assets mining in the U.S. digital assets sector? In what ways can the U.S. government and U.S. companies drive competitive, sustainable (for the environment and energy consumption) development of digital assets?”

The U.S. is currently the largest Bitcoin mining country, producing 37.84% of the world’s hashing power as of January, according to the Cambridge Bitcoin Electricity Consumption Index. By that metric, it appears there are many businesses that believe in the future of digital asset mining.
