Alternative Disposition of Advisory Opinion Request 2013-15 (Conservative Action Fund)
On November 21, 2013, the Commission considered an advisory opinion request from the Conservative Action Fund (CAF). In its request, CAF asked a number of questions relating to the receipt and disbursement of Bitcoins, including whether CAF could accept Bitcoins as contributions from individuals and others lawfully permitted to contribute in connection with federal elections, and whether CAF could contribute, sell or directly spend the Bitcoins they receive. The Commission was unable to approve a response by the required four affirmative votes and concluded its consideration of the request without issuing an opinion.
