Senator Cynthia Lummis On Bitcoin 2021

When I lost spoke with Cynthia Lummis in November 2020, she had just become the first woman elected to represent Wyoming in the U.S. Senate. And she had also just become the most outspoken Bitcoiner ever elected to this office as well.

“Our own currency is by design inflating, by roughly 2% per year, give or take,” she told me at the time. “By design, bitcoin doesn’t do that. So for those of us who are looking for a whole variety of ways to protect ourselves financially, whether it’s in the stock market … or through something that’s going to store value, something that is scarce like bitcoin, you want to have a diverse mix, and I firmly believe that bitcoin belongs in that mix.”
