- Vivek Ramaswami believes that he understands cryptography much better
- He also stated that DeSantis took ideas for the campaign from his book.
- In particular, this is a critique of the CBDC as a control tool.
We previously reported that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis predicts “doom” for bitcoin if Biden wins the next election. But Vivek Ramaswamy, another Republican candidate, spoke out against his statement.
Suddenly, bitcoin became the center of the election campaign of several politicians at once. Each of them is trying to win over the holders of digital assets and those who support the sector to their side.
DeSantis, for example, claims every opportunity to promote the integration of cryptocurrencies. But Biden is not. In his opinion, the current administration is hostile towards digital assets.
But Vivek Ramaswami disagrees with this. In an interview for CoinDesk he ridiculed DeSantis for his claims of “defending” bitcoin. According to the politician, he is the only one who understands the blockchain deeply enough to discuss it at the pre-election stage.
“I understand these things much better. Take his (DeSantis) statement that you can keep “doing it”. What is this? If we want a crypto-friendly president, he must know not only how, but also why,” the politician noted.
Ramaswami wrote a book called Woke, Inc. The work is devoted to the problems of corporate America. And the politician claims that DeSantis “borrowed” many of his campaign ideas from her.
Despite this, Ramaswami does not hold a grudge against his opponent. He’s glad DeSantis is promoting “the right thing.” In particular, this concerns criticism of the digital dollar.
In the Republican primary, Ramaswamy won only about 3.5% of the vote. This is significantly less than Pence, Trump and DeSantis. Many consider his desire to take part in the race to be ordinary populism.
