Opinion: Gemini wants you to vote for anti-democracy politicians

Gemini, the exchange that sent about a billion dollars into Genesis before it shut down withdrawals, has now partnered with ‘Stand With Crypto,’ a tool that will make it easier for Gemini to encourage its users to vote for certain politicians. 

Stand With Crypto has previously partnered with other crypto firms, including Coinbase, to make sure as many users as possible are encouraged to vote for these politicians.

Politicians endorsed by the service include Cynthia Lummis, the senator who attempted to interfere with the peaceful transition of power following the 2020 election. She gets an ‘A.’

A number of other politicians who wanted to make sure people’s votes were not counted also received high grades from the service, which is used by Coinbase, Gemini, Paradigm, Paxos, Anchroage, Blockchain dot com, and more.

These politicians include Ted Cruz, Tommy Tuberville, Jim Banks, Ted Budd, Tim Burchett, and Ben Cline.

The endorsement of these politicians becomes even more objectionable when you actually click on their names. Guy Reschenthaler gets a ‘supportive of crypto’ grade, but it also says, “Guy Reschenthaler has made 0 statements about crypto.” 

Speaking of interfering with the peaceful transition of power, we also see this service endorse Donald Trump, a sexual abuser, with a ‘B.’ This would be the same Trump who once said, “Bitcoin, it just seems like a scam,” and who once stated that the value of cryptocurrencies was “based on thin air.”

Trump has also been indicted for his fake state elector scheme in which many of the aforementioned politicians were complicit.

The crypto industry is very happy to endorse more than two dozen candidates who took serious steps to permanently change the ability for American votes to be counted, all to keep an authoritarian sexual abuser in power.
