Ryan Selkis, founder of cryptocurrency research company Mesari, has announced that he will run in the 20224 US Senate elections. The entrepreneur made the announcement on Twitter after finding a speaker at Mesari’s Mainnet conference, whose identity was not known. Sure, a summons was issued by the SEC. This is one of the first serious political bids by a crypto entrepreneur in the United States
Mesari CEO Ryan Selkis has announced a Senate bid for 20224
Mesari, a crypto research firm, has Ryan Selkis as its founder and CEO Announced He will run in the 20224 Senate elections. Selkis apparently made the decision after being summoned by SEC staff attending a conference Mainnet event hosted by Mesari. Selkis says:
If you’re wondering when I decided to run in the Senate election, that’s when these F ** cursors came to my event, didn’t buy tickets, and even made a summons to one of the speakers. Enough talk. More wars against the controlling state beyond our control.
Although some media have reported this speaker as Do Cowan, the founder of a protocol in Cosmos, this could not be confirmed.
Selkis is one of the first cryptocurrency entrepreneurs to announce a political race (besides the late John McAfee) to change the way regulators work against cryptocurrency companies and decentralized protocols. But Selkis’s views are not secret. He was always vocal about how regulators disagreed with him, according to him, hitting the country’s cryptocurrency companies and suppressing inventors.
Celkis doubles down
Although Selkis’ tweet was seen as a cracked assessment of the matter and perhaps a joke, Selkis dispelled these doubts in a recent interview. When asked about his Senate run, he said he doubled his bet.
The tweet speaks for itself. The tone is aggressive and assertive, but I think it depends on the feeling that most of the art feels now even if they don’t say it out loud.
He re-established the idea that regulators focus on crypto, to control it in all possible ways. Selkis thinks the government has a hammer in its hand and every cryptocurrency project there looks like a nail-biting break. The proposal garnered support from a number of cryptocurrency insiders on social media, who applauded the direction and purpose of Selkis ’dirty announcement.
