In response to a user's inquiry regarding the nature of his statement—whether it was an endorsement or prediction—Dorsey clarified, stating, "both." This dual role as an observer and supporter places Dorsey in an active position within this unfolding political narrative.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a significant figure in the American political landscape, carries the legacy of his uncle, the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. He continues the political dynasty of the Kennedy family with his own presidential bid.
Kennedy first revealed his intention to run for President on April 19th. Apart from his established career as an environmental lawyer and vocal anti-vaccine advocate, Kennedy is known for his robust endorsement of cryptocurrencies. His crypto-supportive stance was highlighted during a keynote speech at the Bitcoin Miami Conference on May 19th.
Kennedy further expressed his stance against restrictive crypto policies during a May 3rd commentary on the Biden administration's proposed tax on crypto mining. He labeled the proposed 30% tax on energy used by crypto miners as "a bad idea."
Although he acknowledged the environmental impact of mining as a valid concern, he opined that its implications were "somewhat overstated." His opposition to such policies positions him as a staunch advocate for the crypto industry in the political arena.
Dorsey's endorsement of Kennedy underlines a shared commitment to the future of cryptocurrency. This convergence of tech industry leadership and political advocacy may significantly influence the public perception and acceptance of cryptocurrencies.
