Texas Senator Ted Cruz Reaffirms His Support for Crypto Industry
In a recent tweet, Texas Senator Ted Cruz has reaffirmed his support for the cryptocurrency industry by strongly supporting an amendment to the damaging cryptocurrency provision in the infrastructure bill that was put forward by Ron Wyden (D-OR), Patrick Toomey (R-PA), and Cynthia Lummis (R-WY).
🚨🚨The Senate is on the verge of passing legislation that would be TERRIBLE for cryptocurrency.🚨🚨The infrastructure deal contains DANGEROUS provisions that would devastate crypto and blockchain innovation.Supporters of crypto need to make their voices heard. https://t.co/iXrcnne0tV— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) August 7, 2021
The former Republican presidential candidate also pointed to the fact that he had come up with his own rewrite that would completely remove from the legislation.
As reported by U.Today, Cruz said that Bitcoin had "a lot of potential" during his June interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.Source
