RFK Jr.'s Financial Disclosures Reveal Bitcoin Holdings Worth Up to $250,000
Financial disclosures from the family of U.S. presidential candidate Robert Kennedy Jr. have revealed that they own Bitcoin (BTC) holdings worth up to $250,000. The filing, dated June 30, indicates that Kennedy owns between $100,001 and $250,000 worth of Bitcoin, with earnings of less than $201 from the investment. However, it does not specify the timing of the Bitcoin purchase.
Kennedy's campaign team clarified that the Bitcoin holdings belong to his wife and that Kennedy himself is not involved in the investment decisions. They stated, "The investments were not his, but his wife's. He is not involved in her investment decisions."
Despite not personally owning the digital asset, Kennedy has been a vocal supporter of Bitcoin throughout his presidential campaign. He has praised Bitcoin in various public appearances and on social media. In May, Kennedy criticized President Biden's proposed 30% tax on crypto mining and voiced his opposition to central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).
In a tweet on June 27, Kennedy referred to Bitcoin as "a bulwark against totalitarianism and the manipulation of our money supply." He sees it as a means to promote transparency and democracy in government institutions. At the Bitcoin Conference in Miami, Kennedy expressed his intention to be a pro-Bitcoin president, garnering attention and support from notable figures in the crypto community, including Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey.
While Kennedy's financial disclosures highlight his family's Bitcoin holdings, it is clear that his advocacy for the digital asset goes beyond personal investments. He sees Bitcoin as a powerful tool to challenge centralized control and promote a more transparent and democratic future. As the presidential campaign progresses, Kennedy's stance on Bitcoin may continue to shape his platform and influence the crypto community's perception of his candidacy.
