In June of 2018 the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Ethics published a memo regarding financial disclosure requirements of cryptocurrency holdings over $1,000.

U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hi), who was Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee but resigned to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders, joins Congressman Bob Goodlatte as the second member of Congress to disclose details regarding cryptocurrency holdings.

The specific amounts of each token that Gabbard purchased were not stated, but the Financial Disclosure Report does note that her holdings under the “Assets and ‘Unearned’ Income” category for both Ethereum and Litecoin are between $1,001 and $15,000.
