Wyoming - yes, Wyoming - is in the lead developing the legal and banking framework that will enable the use of blockchain technology. It's about SO much more than tech, and it looks like Wyoming gets it. I also suspect this lead will have a beneficial impact on the state's economy as blockchain-based businesses (like those un-banked folks in the marijuana industry, perhaps?) flock to where the legal structures are friendly. See this good article for more details.
Wyoming is already the "Delaware of digital asset law," a reference to Delaware's led in corporate law. More than a dozen other US states and Congress are now following Wyoming’s lead by enacting our bills (usually just one or two of Wyoming’s bills). But no other state is likely to catch up to Wyoming—it’s a very tall order for any legislature to enact 13 bills on a single topic in a compressed time frame, especially when another state has already claimed first-mover advantage.
