Brad Sherman’s statements

During an interview in Los Angeles, Brad Sherman said “I don’t think we’re going to get [to a ban] anytime soon. Money for lobbying and money for campaign contributions works, or people wouldn’t do it, and that’s why we haven’t banned crypto. We didn’t ban it at the beginning because we didn’t realize it was important, and we didn’t ban it now because there’s too much money and power behind it.” “Cryptocurrency is a meme you invest in, in the hopes that you can sell it to somebody else before it tanks. That’s the nice thing about a Ponzi scheme.” “For people in places like Iran, Palestine, Cuba or China, bitcoin is not their first [option], it’s their plan B. I’m sure they’d love to just use the dollar as we do in America. But guess what, they [can’t]. And bitcoin is a really nice thing to have.” There has been news that he will be a part of the Crypto Policy Symposium 2022.
