27-Year-Old Congressional Candidate Raises $45k Of $1 Million Goal in Bitcoin & Crypto Assets
Agatha Bacelar is running for Congress and aiming to raise $1 million, “equal to the amount of stock Nancy Pelosi has in Facebook,” in cryptocurrency.
She has received $47,681 till now in crypto donation, with the next goal being $75k and ultimately $1,000,000 USD.
A Stanford engineer and designer, she is only 3% of Representatives in the House with a STEM background.
She is asking for support to
“help elect someone who understands the importance of this breakthrough technology (crypto), and that the US cannot be left behind.”
Baclear is calling for the need for a future where we are able to use the “incredible people-power” of blockchain technologies to build an innovative, better, and more just society.
“The once-bright future for crypto in America has been dimming,”
Federal intervention has been pushing innovation out of San Francisco, which she said was once a headquarters for the crypto industry, and out of the country.
Regulatory inaction and policies meanwhile are favoring big tech companies and allowing monopolies that block out competition that “the next web would bring.”
“We need her in Congress creating a viable future for cryptocurrencies and bringing the American crypto industry back home,”
reads her donation page.
