Making Sense of Hillary Clinton's Bitcoin Rejection

For Hillary Clinton's campaign, accepting bitcoin was "too libertarian".
That's what we learned last week when it was revealed senior campaign aides for the US presidential candidate considered taking bitcoin campaign donations, but dismissed the idea. The email was part of the cache released by Wikileaks, but came to light via a social media thread dedicated to sharing noteworthy content from the many thousands of leaked messages.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like Bither trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

She has to play by the rules that are being handed down by the powers that fund her campaign. Most of the banks are direct Bitcoin

competitors and they are behind these campaigns. If they are against it, and Trump is supporting it... then I would vote for the Redneck. We

should make our vote count, when we are given the opportunity to do it... Your vote is your only weapon to fight against these police state

thinking...  Angry

Whichever candidate you are voting for, all the things that are being promised right now, will go to waste at the time they are elected. That being said, both Hillary and Trump are very poor candidates compared to previous elections. Whomever is winning these elections, it's a loss for the USA and maybe the world.... With that in mind, it will be better not to vote at all.

Bitcoin being "too libertarian" is only an excuse and fake official statement - I will tell you what really happened:  
Hillary or rather her advisers realized that she is not liked by bitcoin community at all, because she represents everything bitcoin stands against for.
Therefore she probably wouldn't receive much - if any Bitcoin donations. To not discredit herself further she backed off from her pro Bitcoin stance.

Hillary's acceptance or rejection of bitcoin is not going to have much impact on bitcoin, so let's just move on with our lives everyone.
