U.S. presidential candidate Andrew Yang hopes for better cryptocurrency regulations

  • “I believe that blockchain needs to be a big part of our future,” Andrew Yang.

The cryptocurrency industry in the United States hopes of having a president who is pro digital assets is being kept alive by the Democrat Andrew Young. The 2020 presidential candidate hopes that he can elevate the industry in the United States. Young made substantial promises at the recently concluded Consensus Conference in New York.

“I believe that blockchain needs to be a big part of our future. If I’m in the White House, oh boy are we going to have some fun in terms of the cryptocurrency community”.

If Yang makes it into the White House, cryptocurrencies will have a batter chance at gaining legitimacy in the United States. He could use his influence to push for bi-partisan legislations that will lay the groundworks for an enabling environment for Bitcoin and other virtual digital assets in the country.
