Newly Appointed US Attorney General Could Possibly Support Bitcoin

Newly Appointed US Attorney General Could Possibly Support Bitcoin

According to an analyst from eToro, Matthew Whitaker, Trump’s recently selected acting AG, has twice tweeted positively about crypto

The Internet Archive can only track down his tweets up until 2016. The said tweets can no longer be accessed after Whitaker set his profile to private.

According to Bitcoin Exchange Guide, Whitaker is probably curious or is already a holder of Bitcoin.

What Did Whitaker Share on Twitter?

The US AG shared a link of a Reuters 2012 article on a story about BTC. In the article Simon Lelieveldt, a banking and payment expert, claimed BTC was in for a collapse due to its decentralized nature, without the backing of a central bank.

But it is because of decentralization that users find Bitcoin appealing.

The article also noted the opinion of a BTC supporter who said that BTC was run by pure mathematics, in contrast to the World Bank, which was at that time laden with scandal.

Another aspect the Reuters article sought was that of workers from major banks all over the world has exhibited interest in cryptocurrency. To give an example the article states that employees from 2 banking giants Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs are alleged to be visiting crypto exchange websites for 30 times a day.

Two New US Governors and Support Crypto

Gavin Newsom, who will assume office as the Governor of California on 7 January 2019, has a BitPay account where his supporters can support his campaign by donating BTC or BCH. Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss contributed more than $100,000 for his campaign.

I should promote the technology ever so subtly by saying I’ll accept Bitcoin in the campaign.

Jared Polis is the co-founder of Congressional Blockchain Congress last year. He will assume office as the Governor of Colorado on 8 January 2019. Since 2014, he is a vocal and avid supporter of BTC. And a section on his campaign page is all about blockchain.

My goal is to establish Colorado as a national hub for blockchain innovation in business and government. I believe strong leadership will put Colorado at the forefront of innovation in this sector…
