US Congressman Buys Cardano (ADA), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Ethereum (ETH)
Alabama Representative Barry Moore bought Dogecoin (DOGE), Cardano (ADA), and Etherium (ETH) in the last two months, according to the trading disclosed filed with the clerk of the House of Representatives on July 2.
These filings are part of disclosure requirements mandated by the “Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act,” or STOCK Act that requires reporting trades no later than 30 days and “in no case later than 45 days” receiving notification of any transaction required to be reported.
Etherium (ETH) was Moore’s first purchase on May 5, above $3,300, and near the $4,380 top on May 12. ETH 0.83% Ethereum / USD ETHUSD $ 3,877.40

Moore made three purchases of ADA on May 10, 11, and 13 when its price was just above $1.70, just days before the $2.45 peak on May 16. Since then, ADA’s price is down 41.3%, currently at $1.43. ADA -0.92% Cardano / USD ADAUSD $ 2.16

His most recent purchase was of DOGE on June 13 at around 3 cents. Unlike the other crypto purchases, this has been towards the decline. Still, the coin is trading around $0.2355, as of writing, down 62% from the $0.73 peak on May 8, according to Coingecko. DOGE 0.88% Dogecoin / USD DOGEUSD $ 0.24

Moore is not alone in buying the meme coin; in early April, US Rep. Mark Green (R-Tenn.) made two purchases of Dogecoin at around 6 cents.
The disclosure does not clear just how much of each coin was bought but rather mentioned a range of $1,000-$15,000 for each purchase. This puts his total crypto investment between $5,000 and $75,000.
However, there is no way to know if the congressman is still holding these crypto-assets or sold them over these last two months.
