Robert Kennedy Jr. Buys Crypto for All His Kids


Presidential hopeful and crypto fan Robert Kennedy Jr. said that following the Bitcoin Conference in Miami this year (during which he gave a speech), he purchased 14 bitcoin units, two for each of his seven children.

Robert Kennedy Purchases BTC for His Children

In a recent interview, Kennedy mentioned:

Right after the Bitcoin Conference, I decided to put my money where my mouth is and bought two bitcoins for each of my seven children.

During the time that they were first purchased, the assets were trading for around $27K each. At the time of writing, they’ve gone up to about $29,500 per unit. Soon, these assets are slated to stand beyond the $400,000 value mark when put together.

In the interview, he also commented that he would remove all anti-crypto people from U.S. government positions. He ensured that only crypto-positive people would serve in the SEC and related financial agencies. He commented:

I don’t want people on the SEC commission who are anti-crypto. At most, they should be neutral, and we should have people on there who are from the crypto community. [The] SEC’s function now is not to protect the American people, but it’s to protect the banks, particularly the central banks and those interests. What they’re doing is obscure, it’s not transparent, and it’s not bringing transparency to our system.

Right now, interestingly, the new BlackRock bitcoin-based ETF product is garnering a lot of attention and excitement in the digital currency community. Many say it will be the application that finally gets the greenlight from the SEC. However, Kennedy expressed disdain for BlackRock and similar companies and says their alleged interest in bitcoin is two-faced and designed to lure people into a trap. He said:

They’re funneling people into these ETFs. As soon as they create a central bank digital currency (CBDC), BlackRock will transform those ETFs from bitcoin into CBDCs and trap us all in that kind of slavery.

Kennedy has also stated that there have been several attempts to censor him regarding the COVID vaccine, which he’s been criticizing since it emerged. Demanding better vaccine safety, he stated in a previous video discussion:

COVID-19 attacks certain races disproportionately… I’m getting slandered, silenced, and censored. When people hear me talk, they realize that I’m not a crazy person, not an anti-Semite, not an anti-vaxxer.

#2 for Democrats Who Don’t Like BTC

Lastly, at the time of writing, it appears that while he’s gained some traction in the polls, he’s still behind Joe Biden, who thus far, is likely set to garner the democratic nomination for the second time. However, for most democrats that value crypto and the ideals it stands for, he’s number one. Kennedy said:

Bitcoiners are a different breed. They are ideologically based. They are people who love freedom.
