A short while ago, the price of Bitcoin broke the $7,000 barrier and is now trading at $7,027. Meanwhile, a US Congressional candidate David Gokhshtein has called Bitcoin a store of value.

‘Bitcoin is pretty much a SOV’

A Republican Congressional candidate who is running in the election on November 3 this year, David Gokhshtein, has again taken to Twitter to comment on the flagship cryptocurrency – Bitcoin. Now, he seems to be a pro-crypto candidate for the US Congress as he has stated that Bitcoin, in his view, is a store of value.

He engaged in a talk with his followers regarding which coin would best suit as a means of quick payment. The options he suggested are LTC and DGB.

Earlier, U.Today reported that Mr. Gokhshtein made a positive comment on his Twitter page regarding XRP – the third largest cryptocurrency.

In the comment thread, DGB followers gladly responded, praising their coin. XRP fans have also raised their voices.
