Robert F. Kennedy, a prominent figure in the Democratic party who ran for US presidency and was known for his support of the cryptocurrency industry, recently made public that he possesses bitcoin holdings valued between $100,001 and $250,000. This revelation comes around two months after his statement at the Miami BTC conference where he denied being involved in crypto investments.
CNBC reports that a financial disclosure report indicates the Kennedy family’s ownership of bitcoin, which amounted to as much as $250,000 as of June 30. This development can be seen as further evidence of Kennedy’s supportive stance towards cryptocurrencies, although it may also raise concerns about potential conflicts of interest.
During his attendance at the Miami Bitcoin conference in May, Kennedy addressed the audience by stating that he had not personally invested in the leading digital currency. However, he expressed his willingness to accept bitcoin donations for his political campaign.
“I am not an investor, and I am not here to give investment advice,” he said at the time.
