President-elect Trump Nominates Bitcoin Advocate to U.S. Government Finance Post

​President-elect Donald John Trump has been making waves ever since Election Day, and has had many interesting meetings and appointed many people to his future cabinet. Now that the electors have successfully voted Mr. Trump as President on Monday, only a ceremonial counting of the ballots remains next month before he is sworn in on January 20th, 2017.

Now, with the actual election squared away, it is time to start managing the nation’s finance, and who better than a Bitcoin man for the job? Congressman Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) has been tapped by Donald Trump to run the Office of Management and Budget

What does the head of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control anyway? According to, the OMB assists the President in overseeing the preparation of the Federal budget and in supervising its administration in Federal agencies. The OMB also oversees and coordinates the Administration's procurement, financial management, information, and regulatory policies. Sounds like an important position, to me.

Mulvaney has distinguished himself as an ardent Bitcoin advocate, going so far as to attempt to educate others in government. Not long ago, back in September, Mulvaney and Jared Polis (D-Colo.) launched the bipartisan Blockchain Caucus Monday to help their colleagues stay up to speed on evolving digital currency and blockchain technologies and develop policies that advance them.

"Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize the financial services industry, the U.S. economy and the delivery of government services, and I am proud to be involved with this initiative," Mulvaney said in a statement. 

Mulvaney has also been in close contact with Jerry Brito of Coin Center on this mission of digital currency education within Washington.

"For the past two years we have worked with Representatives Mulvaney and Polis to educate their colleagues through briefings and other events, and the new Congressional Blockchain Caucus will be a wonderful new platform to continue these efforts," said Jerry Brito, executive director of Coin Center. "

"Their forward-thinking leadership on blockchain technology in Congress is unmatched.”

The mainstream media in the United States is up-in-arms about this newest antiestablishment selection, so you might think he is the right man for the job. President-elect Trump seems very impressed with his mental acumen, which might be important in such a position, stating “He’s a tremendous talent, especially when it comes to numbers and budgets,” Mr. Trump said in a statement about Mulvaney.

This is easily the highest office any Bitcoin-advocate has ever attained within the United States. In my opinion, this is quite a Christmas gift from the nation’s next President to the Bitcoin community. To congratulate Mr. Mick Mulvaney, you can use his contact form at his website here.
