Cryptocurrency is firmly on the agenda in the 2020 presidential race (and no, I’m not talking about John McAfee). Pro-bitcoin candidate Andrew Yang is quietly rising through the stacked Democrat field as a serious contender for the White House.
Yang might be preaching to the converted at Consensus, but he’s taking his pro-bitcoin stance on the campaign trail. As CCN reported, he published a clear manifesto on bitcoin regulation as part of his campaign. He pledges to: “Create clear guidelines in the digital asset world so that businesses and individuals can invest and innovate in the area without fear of a regulatory shift.”
Yang has opened up his platform to bitcoin and cryptocurrency donations. He even tweeted about bitcoin as far back as 2013.
