史蒂夫班農, 前首席策略師於中美. 總裁唐納德·特朗普, confirmed Wednesday that he wants to launch a cryptocurrency of its own.
Speaking to CNBC on Wednesday, the Breitbart co-founder said “they’re the future,” adding that “we’re working on some tokens now, utility tokens, 可能, for the populist movement on a worldwide basis.”
Bannon first hinted at the idea in June, though at the time he was hesitant about revealing too much about his cryptocurrency plans, according to the New York Times.
He did contemplate naming his token the “deplorables coin” 當時, referencing a term used by former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to describe Trump’s supporters during the 2016 presidential campaign.
On Wednesday, Bannon spoke about the cryptocurrency space more broadly as well, 話 “I think these cryptocurrencies have a huge aspect in the future. 明顯, there’s problems in the markets, problems about what it’s used for.”
That being said, he said most ICOs have been disasters. 因此, Bannon insisted the product he and his team are currently working on “have to be quality.”
Bannon also commented on a few other cryptocurrencies in the markets already, 話, “I like bitcoin. I own bitcoin,” but saying he does not own any ethers.
