Crypto Industry Also a Winner From U.S. Election Results

As the dust settles from one of the most tumultuous and divisive elections in recent history, crypto asset traders and analysts are looking for positives from the newly elected government and its leaders.

America’s next leader for the coming four years, Joe Biden, has commented very little on cryptocurrencies, but that appears to be preferable to a leader that actively discouraged them.

Biden Better for Crypto

DeFi Alliance head, Qiao Wang is one of a number of industry observers that see the positives in the election of Biden and is optimistic about the next four years.

He added that previous hostilities towards the industry in the name of defending the dollar make the current outcome preferable.

It has also been reported that economist Lael Brainard, former Federal Reserve governor who led a MIT joint effort to research CBDCs, is primed as the frontrunner for Treasury secretary. Compound Finance general counsel and industry observer Jake Chervinsky added;

“President-elect Biden hasn’t said anything publicly about his views on crypto. For now, it really isn’t a big enough issue to warrant his attention. The next four years of US crypto policy depends on who he appoints to key positions; we’ll know more as the transition gets going.”

Markets Rebound From Weekend Slide
