Bitseven.com -The results of the mid-term elections of the US governors, which took place on November 7, were summed up. It is worth noting that in several states won candidates who are ardent supporters of digital assets.
Ex-mayor of San Francisco Gavin Newsom became the winner in the state of California. Local reporters claim that the politician began to actively distribute cryptocurrencies in the highest echelons of the political power back in 2014. Then he was one of the first to accept donations in bitcons.
Among his sponsors there are quite well-known personalities. As an example, the Winklevoss brothers, who donated more than 100 thousand dollars to a prominent political figure. The new governor also has a BitPay account with which he accepted donations in Bitcoin Cash.
Another representative of the Democratic Party, Jared Polis, has become the new governor of the state of Colorado. He, like Newsom, has a BitPay account, where he collected donations in the form of some digital currencies. The policy in the program has a whole page devoted to the distribution of free registry technology throughout the state. With its help, the governor wants to protect voters and modernize the existing energy system.
Polis is going to start work on the creation of a regulatory sandbox, through which a politician wants to attract into state firms directly connected with the blockchain.
