RFK Details Importance of Bitcoin for U.S. Freedoms, ‘It’s a Guarantee of Democracy’
Speaking today at the North American Blockchain Summit, leading independent candidate in the 2024 presidential election Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. described his personal interest in bitcoin and how it has inspired him as a tool to preserve freedoms and advance the U.S. economy.
“I really started investigating bitcoin and the more that I learned about it, the more I fell in love with it and fell in love with the community,” Kennedy recalled. “It’s democracy. It’s a guarantee of democracy, that decentralization.”
Kennedy was interviewed on stage by Fred Thiel, CEO of one of the world’s largest public bitcoin mining firms in Marathon Digital Holdings. During the conversation, Kennedy recalled how he first encountered bitcoin while speaking with members of the Freedom Convoy movement in Canada, a protest that led the Canadian government to freeze the bank accounts of demonstrators, leaving them without the money they needed to survive.
