Program lifts lid on trading cryptocurrency in Hawaii

State officials said the new “Digital Currency Innovation Lab” program is intended to position Hawaii as a place where financial technology, or fintech, can grow in a way that leads to new economic opportunities while also protecting consumers against risks that come with digital currencies such as Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, ZCash and others.
