Wyoming has long attracted the attention of many companies in the Blockchain and digital currencies industry. Last year, the Wyoming Banking Board authorized the Kraken Exchange to operate as a digital currency bank. Avanti is another company that received a license to provide digital currency trust services in the traditional way. Following the announcement of Tesla’s $ 1.5 billion purchase of bitcoin, Lumis asked Ilan Musk to consider moving the company to Wyoming.
