Crypto-friendly Tim Ryan, JD Vance to vie for Ohio's Senate
Both Ryan (Democrats) and Vance (Republicans) support cryptocurrencies and are running for Ohio's open Senate seat.
Rep. Tim Ryan (Democrats) and JD Vance (Republicans) won their party's nominations to run for Ohio's open Senate seat.
Vance apparently owns a sizable amount of BTC himself. He is also heavily backed by Peter Thiel, who recently stated his views on the moral imperative for Bitcoin adoption, and shamed crypto-skeptical financial leaders.
Vance was also endorsed by former president Donald Trump and beat Josh Mandel, who implemented the program to pay taxes in crypto, then he secured a footnote in crypto-politics history with a single tweet proclaiming his vision for Ohio: "pro-God, pro-family, pro-Bitcoin".
Ryan on the other side co-sponsored the Keep Innovation Act, a crypto-friendly bill designed to maintain reasonable tax reporting requirements. Ryan beat his challenger Morgan Harper.
