Republican Senator-elect Cynthia Lummis spoke on US national television to address the marvels of bit the largest cryptocurrency.
In an interview with Good Morning America, Lummis stated that the asset would be “an important player in stores of value for a long time to come.”
“I do hope to bring Bitcoin into the national conversation,” she said. “I’m a former State treasurer and I invested our State’s permanent funds, so I was always looking for a good store of value and Bitcoin fits that bill.”
“21 million Bitcoin will be mined and that’s it—it is a finite supply,” she continued.
A close ally of President Trump, Lummis bought Bitcoin in 2013 when it was just over $300. She mentioned that she got her hands on the currency, and it is because of her son-in-law, the Chief Product Officer of Crypto financial services firm, Unchained Capital.
“I bought my first bitcoin in 2013 because I believe in the economic power of scarcity and the potential for bitcoin to address some of the manipulations in our financial system,” she said in September.
The crypto-community appreciated her comments on Good Morning America on Twitter.
When asked about Trump‘s refusal to accept defeat and electoral fraud, Lummis stated that a recount was essential and that Trump should not concede.
“The integrity of this election needs to be verified,” she said. Trump’s dispute depends on claims of electoral fraud. These are extensively terminated.
