Cryptocurrency electorate. Why Bitcoin has entered the agenda of the US Presidential election
Data about the crypto-investments of the presidential candidate appeared after he announced in May that he began accepting donations in bitcoins. During the Bitcoin 2023 conference in Miami, Kennedy characterized digital assets as "a symbol of democracy and freedom," while denying that he himself invests in cryptocurrency.
One of the representatives of Kennedy Jr.'s campaign staff Dennis Kucinich told CNBC that bitcoins were bought by the politician after the conference in Miami.
Last week, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong and three other top executives collectively sold shares of the cryptocurrency exchange for a total value of $6.88 million. Since the beginning of the year, the price of Coinbase shares (COIN) has more than doubled to $78.2.
