Nebraska State Senator Eliot Bostar has introduced Legislative Bill 911 on 5 January 2024, aiming to adopt the Blockchain Basics Act. This legislation aims to establish regulations promoting a safe and legal environment for cryptocurrency mining, holding, and trading in Nebraska. The proposed Blockchain Basics Act would permit individuals to host blockchain nodes and conduct crypto mining operations in residential properties without requiring licenses, subject to compliance with local noise ordinances. The bill also distinguishes crypto businesses, requiring them to operate from designated industrial zones. It explicitly states that staking services will not be considered securities in Nebraska.
