Bitcoin in the Senate with Cynthia Lummis
“If we reach the point where we have overspent so much, that things start crashing down, the black swan event occurs… there is a backstop available to every government in the world, and that backstop is Bitcoin.”
— Cynthia Lummis
Date: Tuesday 1st December
Wyoming's Cynthia Lummis is the first woman to represent Wyoming in the Senate, not only that; she is the first Bitcoiner ever to make it into the Senate.
Cynthia describes herself as a "libertarian-leaning Republican". She plans to focus on reducing government debt as well as increasing the understanding of Bitcoin within the Senate.
In this interview, we discuss how she became a Bitcoiner, her political goals, the understanding of Bitcoin within the government and the US debt and deficit.
