Freedom of Information Act
Since 1967, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) has provided the public the right to request access to records from any federal agency. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government. Federal agencies are required to disclose any information requested under the FOIA unless it falls under one of nine exemptions which protect interests such as personal privacy, national security, and law enforcement.
Guardian is preparing numerous FOIA requests to obtain information about the FLEC and the Digital Asset Financial Education group. The requests include the identification of all government members working within this committee. It also requests they identify all companies, projects, and organizations that are assisting the FLEC and the Digital Asset Financial Education group. Who is working with this new government Digital Assets committee?
Project 2: Initiative to add the Blockchain Council to Guardian’s Community Hub (Education and Certifications).
The Guardian Platform has created a Career Connections page within our Community Hub to introduce our community to cryptocurrency and blockchain career opportunities. We have reached out to the Blockchain Council to determine their interest in adding their blockchain technology certification and training programs to the Guardian Platform. We believe education is very important as our industry matures and advances into new and exciting phases.
About the Blockchain Council: Blockchain Council offers blockchain technology certifications to help you advance your career. We are an authoritative group of professionals and enthusiasts who promote blockchain research, development, use cases, products, and knowledge for the betterment of the world.
