Florida Governor Ron DeSantis pledged to protect cryptocurrency from the "current regime."

This stance came to light during a Twitter space conversation with Elon Musk and venture capitalist David Sacks, where DeSantis officially announced his bid for the U.S. presidency.

DeSantis clarified he believes the current regime is coming after Bitcoin.

"The current regime, clearly, has it out for Bitcoin," he stated. "And if it continues for another four years, they’ll probably end up killing it." This statement underscores his belief that people in power may try to stifle the growth and innovation of cryptocurrencies, and he is positioning himself as the protector of these digital currencies.

Coming after banks and institutions

DeSantis has taken concrete steps to protect the crypto sphere as governor of Florida. He signed a bill prohibiting central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) within his state, a move that some legal experts have questioned. DeSantis' reasoning for this? He stated, "I just do not have the itch to have to control everything that people may be doing in this space."

This attitude shows that DeSantis views crypto as more than just digital money—it's a matter of civil liberties. He believes that Bitcoin threatens those in power trying to regulate it out of existence. It's a classic struggle of the people versus the powerful, with DeSantis standing firmly with the people and their right to use cryptocurrencies.

DeSantis is not the first Republican to voice support for crypto. Yet his firm stance against CBDCs and emphasis on congressional authorization for such currencies set him apart. His concerns revolve around the potential misuse of CBDCs to influence politically unfavorable purchases—a perspective that further solidifies his role as a protector against potential overreach by those in power.

Cryptocurrency is becoming a hot topic in Florida and beyond.

Samuel Armes, president of the Florida Blockchain Business Association, noted that DeSantis' office had received more calls about CBDCs than other issues. As we head towards the next election, it's evident that DeSantis is positioning himself as the crypto-friendly candidate.

It's worth noting that DeSantis still trails former president Donald Trump in popularity among Republican and Republican-leaning voters.

However, his bold stance on crypto may well win him supporters in the crypto community and among younger, tech-savvy voters. As the crypto conversation continues to heat up, all eyes will be on DeSantis and his groundbreaking stance on this digital frontier.

Trump vs. DeSantis: Newsom Reveals Who He Sees as the Real Threat!

California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom targeted the top two contenders for the Republican presidential candidacy in 2024. Newsom is regarded as a rising star in the Democratic Party and a potential presidential candidate. According to him, former President Donald Trump's desire for "vengeance" poses an even greater threat to democracy as compared to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is "fundamentally authoritarian". "I've made the point about DeSantis that I think he's functionally authoritarian. I'm worried more, in many respects, about Trumpism, which transcends well beyond his term and time in tenure," Newsom said. He was referring to the former president's frequently expressed threats to exact "revenge" if he returns to the White House on the political foes he holds responsible for the numerous criminal charges brought against him. "The vengeance in Donald Trump's heart right now is more of a threat," said Newsom. Newsom stated that if Trump wins the general election in 2024, he will cooperate with his government to protect Californians' interests, just as he did during the Covid-19 outbreak. "At the end of the day, these are the cards that are dealt. And I want to do the best for the people that I represent, 40 million Americans that happen to live in California," Newsom said. However, DeSantis, the right-wing Republican Florida governor with whom he has regularly disagreed, received the brunt of Newsom's sharpest criticism. He criticized DeSantis' "partisanship"—most recently on show when he turned down Joe Biden's visit to the state in the wake of Hurricane Idalia—and disagreed with his plan to relax lockdowns and outlaw mask requirements. "I don't like the partisanship. And I thought it was demonstrably displayed by what I thought was a very weak exercise by governor DeSantis," Newsom said when asked about the Floridian's snub of Biden.

Historic Decision: Trump's Trial for Election Fraud Goes Live on YouTube

A court has decided that live streaming and television coverage of former President Donald Trump's election fraud trial in Georgia will be permitted. Judge Scott McAfee said all proceedings will be broadcast live on the Fulton County Court YouTube account. The trial has not yet been scheduled; however, it may occur next year when Trump seeks re-election. Trump and 18 other individuals are accused of plotting to rig the state's 2020 presidential election. The former Republican president has entered a not guilty plea to the 13 charges he faces in Georgia. He also has three other criminal trials pending. Typically, all courtroom sessions in Fulton County are televised live. It could be one of the most viewed trials in recent memory as it will be the only one of Trump's four trials to be broadcast. Trump traveled to Atlanta briefly last week to surrender to the Fulton County Jail and have his picture taken. At his arraignment, a brief session at which the plea is formally filed in court, Trump has waived his right to show up there on the scheduled hearing date. He is accused of exerting pressure on Georgia election authorities to overturn the results of the state's election, which he lost to Democrat Joe Biden. He called the state secretary to "recalculate" the vote total, which is at the heart of the prosecution's case. "I just want to find 11,780 votes," said Trump, as heard on a call recording. According to Trump, the call was "perfect," and the lawyers who were present did not voice any concerns. He has claimed that the Georgia case and the other three criminal cases he is facing are motivated by politics.
