The first presidential contender to accept Bitcoin contributions is Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
In addition to being a form of payment, Kennedy refers to Bitcoin as a "exercise in democracy."
Kennedy has established himself as an outspoken supporter of the digital asset sector.
He is against government-issued digital assets and is against the FedNow CBDC's entry.
The fact that Kennedy accepted Bitcoin donations is a significant breakthrough for the relationship between politics and cryptocurrencies.
He strongly advocates for financial independence and individual control over passwords and wallets.
According to Kennedy's remarks, promoting cryptocurrencies would be a key part of his campaign.
