US Senator Wendy Rogers acknowledges that she does not understand Shiba or Doge, but defends them in honor of freedom

Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers, posted a tweet this week saying she supports cryptocurrencies in honor of freedom

She said she doesn’t understand the major meme coins Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB), but she does understand freedom.

According to her, people should be allowed to buy whatever crypto assets they want, even if the coins are not as good as Bitcoin.

These were his exact words:

“I don’t understand SHIB. I don’t understand the DOGE. But I understand freedom. People should be able to buy whatever digital currencies they want. Even if they are not as good as Bitcoin”.

Many Twitter users criticized his comments, some because considering meme coins are worthless.

One tweeter said: “Dogecoin, like the US dollar, has zero intrinsic value and unlimited supply.”

Others, on the other hand, criticized that the comparison was with Bitcoin. One said: “Bitcoin has 7 transactions per second. That is the worst tps rate in crypto.”

Others took the opportunity to promote their favorite cryptocurrencies: some XRP followers did.

For the senator, the main cryptocurrency is bitcoin, in another tweet she says, referring to the truckers’ strike in Canada against the mandatory vaccine and the procedures carried out by the mayor of Ottawa:

“This is why truckers need to get Bitcoin. They can’t confiscate your coins if they don’t have your keys”

Cryptocurrency Bills in Arizona

Rogers introduced a bill seeking to make Bitcoin legal tender in Arizona.

It would be the first state in the United States to make this type of legislation, which already exists in a Central American country like El Salvador.

This week  the Republican senator introduced two more crypto-focused bills.

The first bill, numbered SB 1127, seeks to allow state agencies to accept cryptocurrencies as a payment option for a number of financial obligations such as fines, fees, taxes, and civil penalties.

The second bill, SB 1128, proposes to exempt Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies from property taxes.

Senator Rogers has long endorsed cryptocurrencies. She was appointed to the Blockchain and Cryptocurrency committee in late December last year and has stated that she will strive to make Arizona the cryptocurrency hub of the United States.
