National Front in France would ban bitcoin

1796

Head of the National Front in France would ban bitcoin if she came into power. From Marine Le Pen’s point of view, money belongs to the public and should be the sole control and jurisdiction of the state.

Le Pen, expressing what would normally be akin to a conspiracy theorist’s view on banking oligarchies, considers Virtual Currencies as the fruit of “investment banks of Wall Street” looking to eliminate the role of money in society and cause effectively bank runs in France. No evidence of course has been submitted to support this fantasist assertion.
