Lawyers inducted into the Washington D.C. Bar association now have the option of receiving crypto payments for their legal services.
According to the DC Bar“We do not perceive any basis in the Rules of Professional Conduct for treating cryptocurrency as a uniquely unethical form of payment. Cryptocurrency is, ultimately, simply a relatively new means of transferring economic value, and the Rules are flexible enough to provide for the protection of clients’ interests and property without rejecting advances in technologies.”
The DC Bar is not the first to allow crypto payments for lawyers in the US. Its approval is coming two years after and ’s approval back in 2018. The association joined them in July 2019.
