+ - Congressman Accepts BitCoin For His US Senate Run-> 1

Submitted by SonicSpike
SonicSpike (242293) writes "US Representative Steve Stockman, a vocal opponent of Federal Reserve policy, told reporters that he wants to promote Bitcoin, whose most fervent evangelists tout as an alternative to fiat currency.

To do so, he is now accepting Bitcoin for his Senate campaign against incumbent John Cornyn of Texas.

The announcement was made last night at the launch event for the NYC Bitcoin Center, located just up the street from the New York Stock Exchange. Center founder Nick Spanos a real estate developer and Bitcoin enthusiast says the Center itself is still in something of a planning stage, existing more as a statement about Bitcoin itself, though he plans on hosting a "hackathon" later this month."
