This grabs major attention from the markets and experts such as Ark Invest CEO Cathie Wood and pro-XRP lawyer John Deaton.
Bitcoin Adoption Prospects By US Department of Defense
U.S. Space Force Major Jason Lowery put forward a novel view of Bitcoin, extending its importance far beyond the financial field to the defense and cybersecurity areas, as per an open letter to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Innovation Council.
Lowery believes that Bitcoin and similar proof-of-work (PoW) protocols are of great strategic importance, urging the government to delve deeper into their potential applications. Bitcoin and its underlying technology can serve as a contemporary tool for “offset strategies”.
