All Members of Congress are about to become Bitcoiners after a new initiative to help them learn about and earn free Bitcoin was launched.
‘Crypto for Congress’ has been launched and will see all members of congress given contributions in Bitcoin (BTC).
The initiative is supported by Congressional Blockchain Caucus members, including Bitcoiners on the hill: Representatives Darren Soto and Tom Emmer.
Crypto For Congress To Give Out Free Bitcoin
Crypto for Congress is an educational initiative aimed at expanding the adoption of Bitcoin and other digital assets among Congressional candidates, elected leaders, and engaged citizens.
Each member will receive $50 of Bitcoin after the Chamber of Digital Commerce launched the initiative to educate Washington about the power of Bitcoin and blockchain technology.
According to the announcement dated October 5, 2020,
‘All members of the United States Congress will receive a campaign contribution in Bitcoin.’
The initiative is to introduce 535 members of Congress to Bitcoin and give them ‘the opportunity to interact with and fully realize the potential of blockchain technology.’
As well as the free Bitcoin, each member will also be offered online educational training, a toolkit, and various resources, so they can get to grips with the innovative technology.
