posted 7 months ago
The crypto space has scored two big wins in this mid-term election as two crypto friendly candidates become governors of California and Colorado. Gavin Newsom (D) won 59% of the votes & defeated John Cox (R) to become California’s governor. He has the backing of the Winklevoss twins, who collectively donated $116,800 to Newsom’s campaign up to December 2017.

Jared Polis has taken over Colorado, wining by 51.6% against Republican Walker Stapleton who managed only 45%. Polis has been a big supporter of this space since at least 2014. His campaign page has a whole section on blockchain, where he says: “My goal is to establish Colorado as a national hub for blockchain innovation in business and government. ” Both Governors accept Bitcoin donations.
