Kendrick Meek, who previously served as the House representative for the congressional district, joins

Kendrick Meek, who previously served as House Representative for Florida’s 17th Congressional District, has joined the board of cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase to address the regulatory landscape for digital assets.

In a May 20 post, Faryar Shirzad, chief policy officer at Coinbase, said Meek had joined the exchange’s global advisory board as part of efforts to “modernize the system” that governs digital assets in the United States. The former Florida congressman served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2003 to 2011 and was a member of the Ways and Means Committee, which has jurisdiction over taxes.

According to a report by The Hill, Meek spoke in favor of digital assets because they “offer new opportunities to address systemic issues that plague our financial system.” He will join other former US lawmakers on the council, including Stephanie Murphy, Tim Ryan and Pat Toomey. Cointelegraph reached out to Meek for comment but had not received a response at the time of publication.
