The US currency was heavily criticized by Lummis. According to the senator, the US dollar is being administered by “drunken sailors”, alluding to a runaway boat without a captain.

“I believe USD should and will continue to be the world’s reserve currency. BUT spending like drunken sailors is not serving the American people, or the value of USD”, she said.

All the repercussions on Lummis’ participation led CNBC to transcribe the story, which highlighted a question asked of the senator.

When asked whether it will help ban Bitcoin in the United States, Cynthia reaffirmed her 2013 convictions and stated that she will work to encourage transactions involving digital currency in the country.

Cynthia recently founded a study group on corporate adoption of cryptocurrencies. Representing the state of Wyoming, the senator believes that her state is the US leader in creating rules for the sector, already attracting several businesses to the region.

The senator confirmed to CNBC that some people in Washington are fighting for the country to ban digital currency transactions, attracting concerns from companies. Cynthia recalled that she has Bitcoin, and continues to buy and bet on the volatility of the cryptocurrency, since her first BTC, acquired in 2013, was bought for just US$330.00 and today each BTC is quoted at US$34,640.00.

Even so, Cynthia stressed that people must have their stores of value, independent of the wealthy on Wall Street.
