U.S. presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (RFK Jr.) expressed admiration for bitcoin while criticizing the regulatory approach of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) towards the cryptocurrency industry in an interview with Thestreet, published Friday. RFK Jr. is a nephew of former U.S. President John F. Kennedy and a son of former U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy.
Sharing his intention to nominate crypto-friendly individuals to the SEC should he be elected president, Kennedy stated:
“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.”
