The 2024 Presidential candidate gave the statement on Twitter while reiterating his stance against the FedNow Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). Notably, he expressed his concerns about the CBDC last week and stressed that it would only result in the government seizing and outlawing cryptocurrencies, particularly Bitcoin.

While the FedNow CBDC is scheduled to launch in July, Kennedy Jr contends that they represent the pinnacle of social monitoring and control. He cited a February article in which the White House was accused of “organizing bankers to take part in a sophisticated, widespread crackdown to destroy the cryptocurrency industry”.

Crypto Vs CBDC in US Politics

While both CBDCs and cryptocurrencies are current political hot topics in the US, they represent different ideas and have different ramifications.

Cryptocurrencies are decentralized digital currencies that operate independently of governments and central banks. On the other hand, CBDCs are digital representations of fiat money that are issued and governed by central banks. Unlike cryptocurrencies, CBDCs are backed by the government and are subject to government control.

In US politics, there has been significant debate and discussion around both crypto and CBDCs. Crypto has been a source of concern for many policymakers due to its potential use in illicit activities and its potential impact on financial stability.
