Floridian Governor Bans Crypto

On March 20, Florida’s governor declared a press release regarding the prohibition of digital currencies. He added that the users and the investors are protected from the crypto adoption which questions the economic security and freedom of Floridians. However, several officials including Jimmy Patronis, the State Chief Financial Officer, and Tarren Bragdon, the CEO of the Foundation for Government Accountability joined hands.
Because the Biden administration would demolish the banking sector and credit unions of Floridians, CBDC should be banned, says Ron. Additionally, he says that CBDC probably shrink the market lending power and creates a liability of the Fed government.
