Twitter co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey has thrown his support behind pro-crypto presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who shares Dorsey’s strong belief in Bitcoin. In a recent tweet, Dorsey endorsed and predicted Kennedy’s win against Trump and DeSantis in the 2024 elections. Kennedy has previously referred to Bitcoin as a “bulwark” against government and corporate expansion and intrusion, and an “exercise in democracy” during a well-received keynote speech at a Bitcoin conference in Miami.

As president, Kennedy vowed to protect the right to hold and use Bitcoin, emphasizing the importance of individuals’ rights to self-custody digital assets. He expressed his skepticism about the government’s authority to demand access to a person’s Bitcoin keys or any of their passwords.

In April, Kennedy announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for the 2024 US presidential elections. This makes him the second Democratic Party candidate to challenge incumbent President Joe Biden in his presumed bid for re-election. Kennedy’s mission during the election campaign and in his potential presidency is to end the corrupt merger of state and corporate power, which he believes threatens to impose a new kind of corporate feudalism on the country.

Kennedy is also known for his questioning of vaccines. In 2017, he was appointed by then-President-elect Donald Trump to lead a presidential panel on vaccine safety and science, a move that received criticism from public health experts and scientists. In 2021, Instagram removed Kennedy’s account for repeatedly sharing false information about Covid in violation of their policies regarding the pandemic.

Despite these controversies, Dorsey is optimistic about Kennedy’s chances. In response to a Twitter user who claimed that there was “not a chance the DNC [Democratic National Committee] allows him to be nominated,” Dorsey replied, “Even more reason.” He later added that the DNC “seems more irrelevant by the day” and wrote “end of an empire,” eliciting a response from Tesla CEO and current Twitter owner Elon Musk in the form of two fire emoji.

Kennedy’s pro-crypto stance could potentially bring about meaningful changes in the crypto landscape if he were to become president. However, his skepticism towards vaccines remains a contentious issue, with public opinion divided on the matter. A national poll from USA TODAY/Suffolk University reveals that 14% of voters who supported Biden in 2020 would back Kennedy in 2024. Whether Kennedy can harness enough support to secure the Democratic nomination and potentially impact the future of blockchain technology remains to be seen.
