American entrepreneur and Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang continues to rack up sympathy points from the crypto community with his latest appearance next to Charlie Lee.
Yang, an entrepreneur at heart is building his campaign on progressive policies that embrace technological disruption while placing emphasis on the well-being of the people in what he calls ‘human-centered capitalism.’
Andrew Yang: The Pro-Crypto Candidate
The cryptocurrency trend hasn’t passed Yang by and the candidate has already been actively involved in the space, revealing that he sees blockchain as part of the future.
In April, he published a national framework for digital asset regulation as part of his presidential campaign and has advocated for more clarity in regard to the overlapping jurisdictions of federal regulatory agencies.
The crypto community has seemed to be largely in favor of Yang considering his forward-thinking approach to cryptocurrency regulations. Yang has even called for clear token classifications and sensible tax rules.
The Democratic hopeful is most widely known for his position on universal basic income, guaranteeing $1,000 per month for every citizen ages 18 and older. This position seems to be an attempt to cushion the blow of job losses due to new technologies and automation.
In a recent post on Twitter, Andrew Yang appears next to Charlie Lee, endorsing the creator of Litecoin (LTC) as one of the pioneers in the space. The nature of the discussions behind the scenes is unknown, but both of them have seemed to score more popularity points from their respective communities.

The meeting between the two can also be seen as a net positive for the cryptocurrency space, bringing additional attention to the industry. On the other side of the spectrum, the upcoming meeting between Warren Buffet and TRON founder Justin Sun has seen mixed reactions from the community.
