US Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Reveals Bitcoin Holdings Worth $100,000-$250,000 in Recent Financial Disclosures.

New information has emerged regarding the cryptocurrency investments of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a candidate for the upcoming US presidential elections. According to recently filed financial disclosure forms, Kennedy owns a substantial amount of Bitcoin (BTC), estimated to be between $100,000 and $250,000.

Interestingly, this disclosure appears to contradict Kennedy’s previous statements made at the Bitcoin 2023 Conference in May, where he asserted that he had no investments in BTC. Dennis Kucinich, Kennedy’s campaign manager and a former congressman and presidential candidate himself, has now clarified the situation, informing CNBC that Kennedy’s Bitcoin acquisition took place after his remarks at the conference.

Kennedy, an environmental lawyer who declared his candidacy for the 2024 presidential campaign as a Democrat in April, faces an uphill battle for his party’s nomination. The incumbent President Joe Biden’s decision to seek a second term has significantly impacted Kennedy’s chances, with Biden maintaining an average polling percentage of approximately 64%, while Kennedy’s current rating stands at 14.4%, as reported by RealClearPolitics, a polling data aggregator.

In a noteworthy move earlier this year, Kennedy made headlines by announcing that his presidential campaign would be the first in American history to accept Bitcoin donations. He strongly believes that Bitcoin can serve as a safeguard against authoritarian censorship and has vowed to protect individuals’ right to use and hold Bitcoin if elected president.

Kennedy envisions a future where government institutions become more transparent and democratic, with Bitcoin leading the way towards this transformative vision. He states, “As president, I will ensure the inviolability of your right to utilize and possess Bitcoin. Bitcoin not only acts as a defense against totalitarianism and the manipulation of our monetary system but also points us towards a future where government institutions are more transparent and accountable.”
