Cynthia Lummis is an outspoken supporter of crypto.
The Wyoming Senator recently made headlines with her roughly $100,o00 purchase of Bitcoin.
It’s comforting to see Senators still buying up Bitcoin amid all the uncertainty in the coming weeks, and maybe this should give investors reason to pause, and consider if they are freaking out for no reason.
If politicians in the know are buying Bitcoin, then maybe it isn’t all doom and gloom for the crypto markets after all.
Here’s more on her financial disclosure and BTC position:

Crypto Globe continues:
As Markets Insider reports, this isn’t the first time Lummis bought BTC. In June, the Senator encouraged people to diversify their retirement portfolios with a small allocation to the cryptocurrency, and said she held 5 BTC.
Those coins were at the time worth $170,000 and are now worth over $270,000.
