22 Apr: Politicians, SuperPACs, and Lobbying


Politicians are waking up to the fact that there are votes in Crypto but politicians still can't lead with Crypto according to Decrypt Media's Daniel Roberts. However, I believe that is quickly changing. Former Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) will join the Crypto Council for Innovation as its chief political affairs strategist.

Meltem Demirors back in 2019, tweeted that Crypto lobbying was becoming *big* business; it appears this is happening. Many of the Crypto companies have lobbying efforts and recently Binance.US is opening an office in Washington, D.C., to start expanding on-the-ground efforts toward crypto regulation. Crypto powerbrokers are making developments with adoption-focused regulation at the state degree in various parts of the United States with the federal policy.  So we are seeing what Meltem saw nearly 3 years ago.

Crypto-focused SuperPAC "Protect Our Future" has used $9M to support Democratic candidates since January. States impacted are Oregon, Georgia, Ohio, and Texas as mentioned by Dennis Porter. But, are SuperPACs trying to get Democratic progressives out of the race? In Ohio, Pramila Jayapal abandons Nina Turner as Progressives seem to be siding with Shontel Brown by endorsing her; Briahna Joy Gray
