The American cryptoverse is again a major topic addressed to by many best cryptocurrency news sites. As the headlines show, a second 2020 US presidential candidate has decided to throw their hat into the cryptoeconomy ring – or is hoping (at least) to start that stakeholders in America’s crypto sphere throw their hats into his.
We are talking about the California representative Eric Swalwell Jr. who started accepting cryptocurrency donations for his 2020 campaign, proving that the sentiment and the American cryptoverse are strong. With this, Swalwell Jr. has also signaled adoption of cryptocurrencies by boosting blockchain adoption in the country.
First releasing the pivot on May 23, Swalwell Jr. worked in conjunction with the blockchain startup The White Company. The firm, as reports show, will serve to process all cryptocurrency donations made to the congressman’s campaign. As the altcoin news show, his campaign now accepts donations in bitcoin (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), Bitcoin SV (BSV), ether (ETH), Stellar’s lumens (XLM), and the The White Company’s WSD token.
Swallwell’s congressional distinct – his state’s 15th – covers a lot of positive things around the American cryptoverse. For example, he declared his candidacy for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination last month and entered a stacked contest of more than two dozen prominent members of this party who are also facing off President Donald Trump in the general election next year.
The young congressman is aiming high when it comes to the American cryptoverse and is polling near the bottom of the crowded field of challengers nationally. However, his support for cryptocurrencies has given him a lot of good reputation.
On his crypto donations landing page which is now featured in our latest cryptocurrency news, the Swallwell campaign casts the support for digital currencies and blockchain, stating:
“Eric is running for President to end gun violence, solve the student debt crisis, and make sure Government serves the people. He supports blockchain technology and the use of cryptocurrency to empower the people […] Help Eric run.”
Notably, Swalwell’s positive outlook towards cryptocurrency donations comes in direct response to his fellow 2020 Democratic competitor Andrew Yang who recently made a splash in the US crypto circles and the coming altcoin news by outlining a pro-blockchain and pro-cryptocurrency platform.
