Democrat candidate for President Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has declared his support for Bitcoin, appearing as the keynote speaker at the Bitcoin 2023 Convention in Miami recently. Kennedy Jr. voiced concerns over government control over finance.


He listed the Canadian Trucker protest of 2021 as an example of why he supports Bitcoin. In this particular case, the Canadian government worked with banks to freeze the accounts of protestors of COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. The protests were non-violent.

  3. industry-neutral regulation of energy;
  4. ensuring the US remains the global of hub of cryptocurrency technology;
  5. “sensible jurisdiction and governance”, recognizing that Bitcoin is not a security and should not be regulated as one; and
  6. examining whether individuals like Ross Ulbricht (founder of online black market Silk Road, who received two life sentences), “were prosecuted for actual crimes, or as a means to crack down on crypto.” He added, “I will consider pardoning them and I will act very quickly to do so.”
