The US president further mentioned that in his perspective, achieving fairness entails removing loopholes for crypto traders and hedge fund managers.
It is worth mentioning that President Biden previously stated that the US government might be missing out on around $18 billion in cryptocurrency taxes because of loopholes exploited by wealthy crypto investors. This latest proposal by the president has raised concerns among those involved in the decentralized industry.
Additionally, President Biden mentioned that while the number of billionaires in the United States has increased, their tax rate is still lower compared to that of a schoolteacher, firefighter, or police officer.
Earlier this month, Cameron Winklevoss, co-founder of Gemini, expressed his concerns and criticism towards the Democratic party in the US. He specifically addressed the stance taken by SEC Chair Gary Gensler and Senator Elizabeth Warren against crypto companies.
He highlighted the significance of young voters who played a crucial role in preventing the party from facing a significant defeat. Winklevoss expressed concern that in the next election, the Democrats may face challenges in garnering the same level of interest and support from young voters.
