Many Americans are worried about the economy.
Inflation is skyrocketing and the dollar is weakening as a result of the Democrats’ socialist spending spree.
But Ron DeSantis just put forward a new proposal that will have cryptocurrency users jumping for joy.
Over the past two years, Ron DeSantis led the way on a variety of important issues facing the American people.
While elected officials across the country were enforcing lockdowns, DeSantis led the way by keeping Florida’s businesses and schools open.
While elected officials in other states implemented strict COVID mandates, Ron DeSantis led the way by banning masks and vaccine mandates in the Sunshine State.
When parents nationwide were expressing outrage over their children being brainwashed with Critical Race Theory, Ron DeSantis led the way by prohibiting the teaching of this Marxist ideology in Florida’s classrooms.
DeSantis also banned biological males from competing in women’s sports and made it illegal to teach gender and sexuality to children in kindergarten through third grade.
And at a press conference on Tuesday, DeSantis took the lead in embracing the modern economy when he proposed allowing businesses in Florida to pay taxes using cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.
“I’ve told the state agencies to figure out ways, where if a business wants to pay tax in cryptocurrency to Florida, we should be willing to accept that,” DeSantis said. “We’re working through that.”
Of course, Joe Biden and the Democrats used the COVID pandemic to set the stage for their “great reset.”
And on March 9, the Biden administration issued a sweeping executive order directing a laundry list of government agencies to develop plans to regulate cryptocurrencies, as well as to produce a detailed plan to study the potential creation of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) for the United States.
But this is far from what DeSantis is proposing.
DeSantis noted the difference between the decentralized nature of Bitcoin and what would be government-controlled digital currencies like those proposed by Joe Biden.
“There’s a difference between a decentralized digital cryptocurrency like a Bitcoin and what some are talking about doing at the federal level to convert U.S. dollars into basically a digital currency,” DeSantis said.
“I think there’s a lot of hazards with that, when that’s centrally controlled. I worry about the amount of power that that would give someone in a central authority to basically be able to shut off access to purchasing certain goods. We’d be in uncharted territory,” DeSantis added.
