The Republican senator on a crusade against crypto | Semafor

Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., isn’t graded yet on the cryptocurrency industry’s big scorecard. But at this point, he’d be happy to flunk it.

“Even when you talk to the crypto people, people who support it readily admit that more than half of the cryptocurrencies out there are bad actors that take advantage of people,” Marshall told Semafor in a recent interview.

“The deeper I dive into this rabbit hole, the more concerns I have,” he added.

Comments like those have set Marshall apart from the rest of his party when it comes to the issue of crypto. While several Democrats have taken to openly savaging the industry in the wake of its recent scandals, the deeply conservative Kansan is the first GOP senator to have openly joined the ranks of crypto skeptics.
