Bitcoin is Leading in Presidential Candidate Ron Paul’s Poll after 64K Vote

Ron Paul

Bitcoin is leading in a Poll by former Texas Republican congressman and presidential candidate Ron. The formal lawmaker is seeking to know what form people will like to keep $10,000 gifted funds for 10 years.

The formal congressman asked his followers to select the form they would like to keep the gifted funds for 10 years without tampering with it.

He asked: “A wealthy person gifts you $10,000. You get to choose in which form you’ll accept the gift. But there’s a catch: You must keep the gift in the form that you choose for 10 years without touching it. In which form would you accept the gift?”

Ron Paul gave out 4 options, which include Federal Reserve Notes, Gold, Bitcoin, and 10 Year US Treasury Bond.

Of the options, Bitcoin is leading with 58%, while gold has 33 percent of the poll. The Federal Reserve Notes and 10 year US Treasury Bond are still battling to catch up, recording 7% and 2% respectively. At the moment close to 65,000 people have voted.

Although the Poll is still ongoing, its present result shows that people are tired of entrusting their funds to the government.

Since the formal congressman was gifted some Bitcoin some days back by Bitcoin Foundation board member Bobby Lee, it appears the presidential aspirant is now looking into cryptocurrency.

Ron Paul, who now owns a gold plated Bitcoin wallet, is seeking to know more about cryptocurrency Bitcoin via his Twitter wall. To his amusement, people are now in support of cryptocurrency than before.

Bobby Lee, said he gifted Ron Paul loaded Bitcoin wallet, customizing it to match his birthday.

“It was a special serial number AA000820 to match his birthday! And he loves the #Gold color,” Lee said.

The same Paul received some gifts at the 2019 Litecoin summit.

While Paul is known as an advocate of Gold, the US congressman declared support for Bitcoin and blockchain technology in early July.
