Steve Stockman on Technology

Former Republican Representative (TX-9)


Accepts Bitcoin donations as an alternative to fiat currency

Steve Stockman is the outsider's outsider--what other Texan would spend a freezing New Year's hundreds of miles away in New York City? But there he was last night at the launch event for the NYC Bitcoin Center, located just up the street from the New York Stock Exchange.

Stockman, a vocal opponent of Fed policy, told Business Insider last night that he wants to promote Bitcoin, whose most fervent evangelists tout as an alternative to "fiat currency" [such as dollars; Bitcoin is not backed by any government]. To do so, he is now accepting Bitcoin for his Senate campaign against incumbent John Cornyn.
