DeSantis talks crypto with Elon Musk
Florida’s governor and the latest Republican Party’s leadership candidate talked about cryptocurrencies and bitcoin in a Twitter space with Elon Musk and venture capitalist David Sacks.
DeSantis said he sees crypto as a question of civil liberties. Earlier, he signed legislation prohibiting the use of central bank digital currencies within the state.
Bitcoin represents a threat to the current regime, they’re trying to regulate it out of existence, DeSantis said in the Twitter space from where he announced his Presidential candidate bid.
However, Florida’s governor has a long way to go before he surpasses the leading candidate and the former President Donald Trump. Trump’s views on cryptocurrencies have been a little ambiguous. During his presidency, he said that he is not a fan of cryptocurrencies as their value is based on thin air. But later he launched his own NFT collections raising millions of dollars.
