2020 Presidential Hopeful Elizabeth Warren Shreds Crypto During Recent Senate Hearing

US Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is widely rumored to run against Donald Trump in 2020, has recently revealed her hawkish stance on cryptocurrencies during a Senate Banking Committee hearing, Forbes reports.

Echoing Nouriel Roubini’s criticism, who bashed crypto’s “massive” security flaws during his testimony, Warren claims that digital assets can be easily stolen. She also lambasted initial coin offerings (ICOs) that lure in small investors in order to swindle them.

At the same time, the Democratic Senator emphasized that it is important to “nurture” positive aspects of crypto while focusing on investor protection.
