The Founder of SkyBridge Capital: The Next Generation of Presidential Candidates Will Be Pro-Crypto
Former White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci, the founder and managing partner of global alternative investment company SkyBridge Capital, believes that both presidential candidates in 2024 would favor cryptocurrency.
Scaramucci, Founder of SkyBridge predicted in an interview with Crypto Banter that the White House will grow increasingly supportive towards cryptocurrency, culminating in two pro-crypto candidates running in the next presidential election.
Scaramucci, who worked as the White House Director of Communications during Trump’s presidency, emphasized Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s remarks that cryptocurrency is quickly becoming a part of American finances.
“Let me just say this to you, follow the money because there is a water-wall of money entering Washington from the different associations and lobbying groups. I’ll make a prediction on your show that the 2024 final two presidential candidates will be pro-crypto, pro-blockchain. Follow the money.”
Following President Joe Biden’s recent Infrastructure Bill, Scaramucci said that earlier detractors of crypto were warming up to digital assets. Scaramucci claimed that the White House and US officials are under pressure to satisfy their crypto-holding constituents.
He went on to say:
“You have 73 million people that own [crypto]…This is a ‘DLO’– decentralized lobbying organization. 73 million people descending on these people, calling them. That’s how Washington works.”
Scaramucci compared the political response to cryptocurrency to Uber, claiming that authorities first refused to allow the ride-hailing business to operate. However, as a result of the tremendous popularity of the movement, politicians began to alter their stances to be more supportive, reacting to the “will of the people.”
