Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a U.S. presidential candidate, heralds cryptocurrency as a key instrument in fighting inflation and reducing government and banking system control over the economy.

Kennedy's assertion that "crypto equals freedom" underscores his belief in digital currencies as a means to decentralise financial power and counteract the wealth concentration among the elite.

As an advocate for Bitcoin (CRYPTO:BTC) and cryptocurrencies, Kennedy views these digital assets as essential for escaping the central banks' "money printing machine" and promoting transactional freedom akin to free speech.

Promising to protect Bitcoin if elected, Kennedy aims to end the current administration's crackdown on cryptocurrencies, ensuring the liberty to maintain private wallets and secure transactions.

Opposing central bank digital currencies, Kennedy aligns with other political figures in cautioning against CBDCs as tools for comprehensive surveillance and control over personal financial activities.
