A Pro-Bitcoin Senate Candidate Has Won Her Wyoming Primary

And no, it's not Caitlin Long!

Happy Wednesday, Blockfolians

The Lede

Imagine a Senate candidate who bought their first bitcoin in 2013 at $320.

Imagine them saying: “I’ve watched the fundamentals of bitcoin play out…That scarcity, which under economic theory should store value, has done so.”

Imagine them pointing to cattle and saying: ““Each of those cattle [have] decreased by over $400 a piece because of coronavirus. We need stores of value that are decoupled from the economy.”

Well, you don’t have to imagine, because that’s Cynthia Lummis, a former Congresswoman from Wyoming who has just beat out 9 Republican primary candidates to advance to the general election in a solidly Republican district.

Lummis sees opportunity to govern with Republican president ...

As CoinDesk puts it: “Should Lummis win, she may become one of the most crypto-friendly lawmakers in the legislative body.”

Go Cynthia!
