The famous exponent of the blockchain world, Brock Pierce, has announced he is running for president in the US elections to be held in November 2020.

For those who don’t know this figure, born in 1980, we can immediately say that he has been active in the blockchain world for several years now. He was also director of the Bitcoin Foundation, and co-founder of several companies such as EOS Alliance, Blockchain Capital, Tether and Mastercoin, famous for being the first ICO (Initial Coin Offering) of his time.

Brock Pierce was also an advisor to Block.one for several months during the company’s early years and a key contributor to the EOSIO project, which introduced Block.one’s software published in 2018.

He can be defined as “blockchain agnostic”, not at all maximalist, as repeatedly stated, towards a crypto or blockchain.

In detail, however, Pierce has a soft spot for the EOS blockchain, and has always shown himself willing to participate actively in various initiatives, think of the request to vote for EOS holder, the EOS Torch last year. We can say that he is also involved in dApps (Decentralized Applications) as he has become an avatar for the Chain Clash game that runs precisely on EOS.

He’s certainly not lacking in popularity and he’s considered by everyone as a true model to follow, as is his wife, Crystal Rose, who is also involved in the EOS blockchain. Crystal Rose is also behind the sense.chat project that was chosen by Akon to provide support and a public chat for all the information about Akoin, of which she is also part of the board.

The upcoming US 2020 elections now have a new candidate who can count on the votes of all those who use crypto and blockchain, people who still have their influence and can make a difference on big numbers.

Let’s also note that a candidate open to this world will be able to bring a wave of change and revolution in a system that is too rigid and has no clear rules, which do not allow the sector to be competitive enough compared to other crypto-friendly countries.

After all, the United States is now led by Donald Trump, a leader who does not seem to be liked by many. The current president seems hostile towards crypto and blockchain, so it could be a good time to mark a turning point in a country where he is seen by all as a leader, whose decisions also affect the other side of the world.
