I am not someone who wants to accept donations and support in a race that we will not win. And so, tonight I am announcing I am suspending my campaign for president.”
Crypto and blockchain technology formed a significant part of Yang’s policies. As recently as January 2020, Yang called for clearer crypto regulations in the U.S. to enable the country to keep up with the developments in the emerging digital economy.
Yang was a critic of the current patchwork of Federal and State crypto regulations in the U.S., calling the legal framework for digital assets a “hodgepodge.” His policy proposal also included the famous $1,000 per month universal basic income for every adult in the country.
