One of the most interesting stories in the entire crypto world is that of Kelly Loeffler, the former CEO of Bakkt. Who, after leaving the company management, became a Republican Senator for the state of Georgia, in the United States. A job that apparently does quite well, as she was appointed by US President Donald Trump as a member of the Task Force for the Reopening of the Economy. As discussed in our Tweet of today:
Kelly Loeffler: From Bakkt CEO to Washington
Kelly Loeffler has become in recent months one of the most controversial figures not only in the crypto world, but in the entire United States. Well, the newly appointed Republican Senator from the state of Georgia is accused of using inside information to make investments. Which have brought him great profits.
Although these allegations have not been confirmed, they represent an important mark in Loeffler’s career. That it has led her to liquidate her investments, to prevent rumors about her immoral behavior from being part of the American political agenda.
However, despite the controversy that would now surround the image of the previous Bakkt CEO, Donald Trump seems to trust Loeffler. Therefore, the President of the United States has appointed the Senator as a member of the Task Force for the Reopening of the Economy. As Loeffler herself commented on her Twitter account:
“Thank you @realDonaldTrump for naming me on your Task Force to safely reopen America after # COVID19. With 22 million Americans applying for unemployment aid, it is clear that we must start working to revive our economy and get the American people back to work safely.“
With these words, the previous Bakkt CEO shows not only his willingness to work aligned with the policies of President Donald Trump. It is the way the crypto world connects with all sectors of society, allowing the CEO of a major Blockchain company to make a successful political career in Washington DC.
