Cynthia Lummis has been vocal about her support for crypto.
Lummis has been open in her views, saying that the leading cryptocurrency bitcoin allows investors to diversify their assets amid the U.S. dollar’s declining value concerns. Earlier, Lummis urged people to buy Bitcoin and save it as part of the retirement plan. “I believe USD should and will continue to be the world’s reserve currency. BUT spending like drunken sailors is not serving the American people or the value of USD, well,” the Wyoming Senator tweeted. I believe financial innovation offers an egalitarian opportunity for hardworking Americans to store the value generated by the sweat of their brows, she added.
