🟠SENATOR BLACKBURN EMBRACES CRYPTO DONATIONS

Day: 09 | Time: 18:03:22 US Senator Marsha Blackburn has announced that her re-election campaign now accepts donations in cryptocurrencies. This move follows the recent trend of adoption of Bitcoin by US politicians, including President Donald Trump and Congressman Matt Gaetz. Blackburn argues that Bitcoin is a "very good thing" for freedom and privacy, but criticizes central bank digital currencies, defining them as tools of government control. The senator will also speak at the Bitcoin 2024 conference in Nashville at the end of the month.

U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has announced, in a press release sent to Bitcoin Magazine, that her re-election campaign now accepts cryptocurrency donations. This move comes as Blackburn's campaign recently launched a page dedicated to Bitcoin donations. “Our campaign is committed to meeting supporters where they are,” said Senator Blackburn. “As a growing number of Americans utilize digital currencies for everyday transactions, we are excited to take this next step and stay on the cutting edge of the 21st-century digital world.” This announcement follows a recent trend of Bitcoin adoption among U.S. politicians. Just yesterday, Blackburn chaired the RNC Platform Committee that passed their 2024 platform draft, committing to defend the right to mine and self-custody Bitcoin. Congressman Matt Gaetz recently introduced a bill allowing federal income tax payments in Bitcoin. Additionally, former President Donald Trump also started accepting Bitcoin Lightning payments for campaign donations. Earlier this year, Senator Blackburn told Bitcoin Magazine that the freedom and privacy aspects of Bitcoin are a "very good thing", while advocating strongly against central bank digital currencies (CBDC), saying they are spy tools for the government to use against their citizens.
