Trump is no Bitcoin and altcoin fan, according to what he posted online.
This was reportedly his very first comment on the subject since he began his presidency.
I am not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, which are not money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air. Unregulated Crypto Assets can facilitate unlawful behavior, including drug trade and other illegal activity….
