    Federal Elections Survey

    We sent an email to over 800 federal elections’ candidates asking them 3 Bitcoin related questions:

    1. What is your position on Bitcoin?

    2. Do you accept Bitcoin donations?

    3. Do you believe that “crypto” should be regulated as a whole or do you believe there are several categories within “crypto” (eg. stable-coins, security tokens, etc) and that Bitcoin deserves its own category, and thus its own separate regulations (much like in other countries)?
