Digital Federal Credit Union (DCU) has joined the Chamber of Digital Commerce, the Washington, DC-based blockchain trade organization.

DCU claims to be the largest credit union in the New England region by total assets. Founded in the late 1970s, it boasts more than 500k members throughout the US. The Massachusetts-based credit union is the first of its kind to join the organization, which was established in 2014 and aims to shape policy around blockchain in the US capital.

In statements, DCU president and CEO Jim Regan echoed others in the credit union space, saying:

"We believe distributed ledger technology has the potential to make a positive impact for credit unions and their members."

The credit union’s entry into the trade organization isn’t its first foray into the technology. DCU operates a fintech innovation center out of Boston, and in the past has said it wants to attract blockchain developers to take part in the initiative.
