Ron DeSantis Says CBDC Will Become a Massive Threat
DeSantis’s recent statement has ignited intense debate among the crypto community, policymakers, and citizens. He mentioned that they would not recognize CBDC in the state of Florida. He is expecting that other states are probably going to follow suit, and that will stop their ability to do it through executive actions. Moreover, they don’t have the authority to do so because there would be a lawsuit.
According to the governor of Florida, CBDC will allow people to prohibit undesirable purchases. This will impose a social credit system on the country. Moreover, CBDC will become a massive threat to American liberty on January 20, 2025.
In recent days, DeSantis has continuously expressed his strong objection to CBDC. In the recent Fed announcement, he claimed that the government may use a CBDC for evil purposes, including to “control” American money. DeSantis expresses skepticism about their impact on the economy and financial stability.
