New Clovr Survey: Crypto Voter Trends in 2016 Analyzing Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton Results
A survey, conducted by creators of iGaming technology Clovr concerning political affiliations among cryptocurrency investors was reported by CCN. The survey found that Hillary Clinton received more votes from crypto owners, compared to Donald Trump. Approximately 46% of survey respondents reported voting for Hillary that year.
A chart from the survey indicates that 864 people were surveyed. The chart indicates that a majority of cryptocurrency investors voted for Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump followed behind, with 33.83% of votes.
Clovr project manager Kip Wright stated in the CCN report that the trends can be expected to continue as the 2020 election nears. He further added that presidential candidate Andrew Yang has been vocal about wanting to bring in a national framework for cryptocurrencies and that it bodes well for the progressive trendline.
According to a recent report by Forbes, Yang has made cryptocurrency and blockchain a big issue in the 2020 presidential election. Yang’s promise concerning cryptocurrency includes impending a blockchain-based mobile voting system, in the event that he prevails in the upcoming election.
Yang’s own campaign website features a proposed policy on crypto digital asset regulation and consumer protection. Therein, he indicates that cryptocurrencies and digital assets have become a large amount of value and economic activity, but that the quick growth has “outstripped” response by the government.
There has been no national framework to regulate the assets, and several federal agencies have claimed conflicting jurisdiction. Concurrent with this is a patchwork of varying regulations by the states.
He also highlights problems that need to be solved, which includes the development of cryptocurrencies and digital assets faster than the regulations can keep up, conflicting regulations by the states, and uncertainty as to what the regulatory framework is and the lag behind other countries. It appears that, if elected, Yang intends to address these issues impacting the cryptocurrency space.
