I'm not a single issue voter, so it would seriously depend on who the candidate is, what else they stood for and how trustworthy, (relatively,) I viewed them to be. Especially given this and the last several elections, where anyone with a conscience should vote for who they think is the least destructive, shiniest of a selection of only turd candidates.

Bitcoin would be in a very bad shape if it required support by a president. If that was the case, Bitcoin would have become like fiat and it would be senseless to vote for it.

Of course a president that would promote Bitcoin use across the nation would be a plus. However, because Bitcoin does not depend on that support, it is equally important to take into consideration the candidate's opinions on other political matters as well. Assuming that a potential president that supports Bitcoin is likely on the libertarian side of the political spectrum there are high chances that he/she would be the preferred choice for me.

But I can only reinforce my statement that Bitcoin must remain fully functional as a decentralized currency without political support. That's the whole point of Bitcoin: Money independent of centralized control, because - as we can see these days again - power is abused sooner or later.

That's not enough reason to support someone as a President. Yeah it may affect my decision but not that much.

I care more about general economic situation and world peace. Without those bitcoin doesn't mean a shit. Look at Europe. Refugees fucked everywhere up. And it is just Syria. Check the world map and see how many countries are there like Syria. If those people start to abandon their homes. We are all doomed.

NO. The worst way Bitcoin can go is being handled by governments. What are you voting your president for right now? I'm telling you - you're voting for them because you can't have another choice. And even if you do, a vote more or less won't change anything. Bitcoin being appreciated by governments means future taxes and such things. They can find a way to fully control it, you never know what idea they got.

stay with your original choice or the party you usually vote for?  How strongly do you feel about Bitcoin? Strong enough to switch votes?

How much weight does this add to the final decision you have to make at the voting stations? Let's see, if you would switch and why.  Wink
Although he supports Bitcoin , one person can't do important changes in Bitcoin acceptance , Bitcoin needs support from a financial companies , not from political persons , so I won't change my vote because some fields (like fighting against racism and respecting every human) are more important than Bitcoin.

I would not solely vote for a president, simply because he or she supports Bitcoin. That being said, I do believe the Bitcoin topic is an important one to talk about, since Bitcoin has the prospect of being the currency of the future, and it should be getting much more press then it has been in the media. It would be awesome if the Bitcoin topic would be one of the questions asked in the upcoming Presidential debates, and I would love to hear the nominees' opinions on the matter.

I think it would be foolish to vote for one just BECAUSE they support Bitcoin although supporting Bitcoin would help sway my vote in favour of themselves.

I agree, I have to state the obvious that the people who want bitcoin promoted from the President just want to be in early at the train station. I can't really blame them on that perspective though with the bigger view -the nation needs more than money to keep it from standing.


In conclusion; there isn't any other reason for Bitcoin to be promoted, I mean c'mon if the Government wanted the Dollar-2.0 then they would have done it already. Who knows, they could just make a totally new currency this year...who knows

Whats the point to vote into a president that support bitcoin, i just thinked if such support he wanna to regulate it, and bitcoin doesnt need those, make people pay high fees to trade bitcoin or altcoins would be insane, atleast i do believe we will get pissed with such act. For other side if the person has a vision with bitcoin and recognize bitcoin as money and just regulate it without any tax, only if someone wanna to exchange it to fiat i do believe it will be amazing.

I don't know, but i don't wanna for giving my vote into the president is supporting bitcoin, it's not just about supporting bitcoin but it's about a lot of regulate and the civilian's life. because maybe it's just a campaign for catch sympathy.

In my mind, i don't need the president is supporting bitcoin or another like that, but i just need giving a freedom into their civilians.

I don't think so,if a candidate is planning to support Bitcoin when he gets elected maybe I will think about voting him,but in the end I will go with my original choice.Bitcoin is important but not so much to make me change my opinion about this and waste my vote, after all, I don't believe it needs any politician's support.

Well, it still depends in his leadership on his past experience. I won't vote a candidate just because he supported something that only a few would be benefited by his law, in fact I would vote a candidate who's willing to change and govern his country for the better, not only for those people who's acting selfishly. Bitcoin is only a part of our life since it poked our interest about it because it is the future money but I think it is wrong if you'll vote a candidate just because of this thing, this only one thing. I think it is more better if we know the person who are we going to vote more than we know bitcoin.

It wouldn't sway my opinion of them but I don't believe it's a point they should be making as there are much better issues to address.

I think I wont change my vote because of the president candidate want to support bitcoin, the first reason is i dont know whether the candidate is just looking for support or really want to develop bitcoin, the second reason, i afraid after getting approval by the president there will be a lot of rules regarding to bitcoin, so in my personal opinion i dont really like government meddle up in bitcoin

I think I am not going to vote either for me who ever is the one that is going to try to adopt bitcoins or support well that is going to be in our favor.

But still I don't think that a president is going to support bitcoin either it is better the way bitcoin is anonymous and it is just being discovered by a lot of people.

And if so a president is going to support bitcoin, I don't think so that he is saying a true promise but only sweet promise.

But i doubt about that if that is just more in their campaign, but different in the real because too many a lot of candidate is always throwing the sweety statement in to the community. but just giving a vote into the president is giving appreciate into bitcoin and community and not making a strict regulate for their civilians about using bitcoin/ and that is will useless just giving the vote into the president is supporting bitcoin but in real their are making a strict regulating about using bitcoin for their civilians. we are need candidates is are not just throwing a bullshit statement.

Is this a trick question? Grin

To be honest I think it will depend on who the candidate is. If the candidate supports Bitcoin but he is known to be corrupt, stupid or incompetent then why would I vote for him just because of that? The future of the country should not depend solely on because he supports or not supports "X". Your vote should go to the candidate who will look out for the welfare of your country's citizens. Voting for someone just because he "supports Bitcoin" will be stupid on your part as a voter.

No, there are so many consideration to vote a candidate, just because the possible president support bitcoin it doesn't mean i'll vote him or her, there are so many aspects that we must thinking carefully before vote them, however he/she that support bitcoin might be a good candidate as we can see he/she support the new technology which is a good point for them but back to the point besides they support the bitcoin there are many aspects that we must consider also.
