Perianne Boring, president of the Chamber of Digital Commerce (CDC), one of the strongest advocates for the bill, sought to position the law as one that had "made history" by providing an alternative, legislative-based model to industry-specific rule-making.

Boring told CoinDesk:

    "The fact that this went through the legislative process is a big step forward, the bill also adds more clarity than any other state by a long shot."

Boring said that the CDC’s membership, comprising stakeholders including IBM, Microsoft, RRE Ventures and Ripple, among others, was largely supportive of the bill, which codifies proposals first published in December by the North Carolina Office of the Commissioner of Banks.

"It is a business-friendly bill and gives better guidance to businesses," Boring continued.

Other members of the industry offered a comparably more measured take.
