Hillary Clinton “Disappointed” Crypto Exchanges Aren’t Banning Russians
Hillary Clinton said she was “disappointed” that cryptocurrency exchanges weren’t blanket banning all Russians, complaining that this was likely due to their “philosophy of libertarianism or whatever.”
Clinton made the comments during an appearance on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show.
“Everybody should ratchet up the pressure,” said Clinton. “I was disappointed to see that some of the so-called crypto exchanges, not all of them but some of them, are refusing to end transactions with Russia – you know, from some I don’t know, philosophy of libertarianism or whatever.”
Although large exchanges have so far refused to place a blanket ban on Russians, they are taking action against Russian politicians and oligarchs.
