The race to elect the first pro-Bitcoin Politician is heating up, as groups on both the right and left are accepting Bitcoin contributions to back Bitcoin friendly candidates.
We reported on 12/31/13 Steve Stockman’s bid will be accepting Bitcoin donations for his Senate run. Democratic Super PAC, 1911 United has recently begun accepting Bitcoins as well as USD. Not only will they work to accept Bitcoin donations, but they want to go further, they state; “we want to throw our support behind a progressive candidate for office who supports Bitcoin, or as we say it, a “Bitcoin candidate””
It has been said that nothing motivates policy change faster than individual Politicians self motivations. With potential influxes of Digital Currency donations, Politicians will have to define Digital Currency policy to cash in.
