Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a Democratic presidential candidate in the United States, has been a vocal supporter of Bitcoin and blockchain technology. He even received Bitcoin (BTC) donations for his campaign.
Despite being a supporter of blockchain technology, he acknowledged at the Bitcoin conference that he is “not an investor” in the cryptocurrency market.
Financial documents indicate that Kennedy’s family owns up to $250,000 worth of Bitcoin, even though he has previously denied buying the cryptocurrency.
The report did not disclose the dates of purchase or the original purchase price of the Bitcoin.
Kennedy has been a strong supporter of Bitcoin and has said that he would work to make it a more mainstream currency if he becomes president.
With the 2024 US presidential election just around the corner, cryptocurrency and blockchain technology are becoming hot topics of debate. It is unclear how the market will react to the many surprises that are sure to unfold in the months leading up to what is shaping up to be one of the most closely-watched presidential elections in recent history.
The Kennedy campaign made it clear that the cryptocurrency investment belonged to RFK Jr.’s wife and that the presidential candidate was not engaged in her investment decisions after CNBC posted an article regarding the financial disclosure.
