U.S. Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Vows to Protect Bitcoin Rights and Promote Financial Freedom
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a U.S. presidential candidate, has pledged to protect the rights of individuals to use and hold bitcoin if elected president.
He believes that bitcoin serves as a defense against totalitarianism and manipulation of the money supply, while also pointing towards a future with more transparent and democratic government institutions. Kennedy, the son of former U.S. Attorney General and Senator Robert F. Kennedy, has expressed his opposition to central bank digital currencies, emphasizing the importance of financial freedom and warning about the potential dangers of government control.
He has been vocal in his support for bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as engines of innovation and has criticized proposed cryptocurrency mining taxes and the role of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in protecting banks rather than the American people.
Kennedy also accepts bitcoin donations for his presidential campaign and advocates for representation from the crypto community within regulatory bodies like the SEC.
