A senator of the United States, Cynthia Lummis representing Wyoming has aired out her opinion about BTC, XRP, and Dogecoin among other digital assets in a show on CNBC called Squawk Box show.
The senator said the only lasting cryptocurrency, in the long run, will be Bitcoin while others will fade with time.
Special Attention to Altcoins
Having established her stance as a pro-Bitcoin, the show’s host asked Lummis if those other cryptos whose prices were displayed on the screen during the show will last as long as BTC. These assets in question include Litecoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, and XRP.
Lummis believes the standard for the crypto industry is Bitcoin and it is going to be here for long. Answering the question in front of her, she mentioned that there has to be extra attention paid to the altcoins since they are created differently from BTC. While BTC is decentralized, the status of others is questionable.
Particularly, she spoke of digital assets that are created by some entities and individuals while a huge amount is kept for themselves. While she didn’t mention any asset, she reiterated that such an asset would be a security. She went ahead to mention the expected features associated with the tokens though she did not name Ethereum nor XRP.
To display her level of confidence in BTC, she mentioned that the asset is digital gold as it is more of a commodity.
