Recently, Ripple Labs CEO Brad Garlinghouse reaffirmed his view of the potential for the United States to become a global leader in the blockchain and cryptocurrency sector. The positive vision expressed by Garlinghouse could happen even in the face of regulatory challenges in the industry in the current US scenario.

The pseudonymous account JackTheRippler, a strong supporter of Ripple, recently shared an excerpt from Garlinghouse’s interview on CNBC, in which the executive expressed his negative feelings regarding the resistance faced by the cryptocurrency industry from the US government.

For Ripple’s CEO, the cryptocurrency industry is “behind Washington”, in addition to being forced into a defensive position. In his statement, Garlinhouse highlighted his vision that he wants the US to become one of the financial centers with these technologies.

“We want the US to be one of the financial centers for this next generation technology!”, said Garlinhouse.

It is worth remembering that, recently, the former US president and current candidate for the position, Donald Trump, publicly expressed his support for cryptocurrency mining, including the production of Bitcoin in the country. Trump participated in a meeting where he received important figures from the crypto mining sector.

In a recent publication, Trump highlighted his stance in favor of the cryptocurrency industry, highlighting the important role of Bitcoin mining in stabilizing the energy grid. On this occasion, the former US president highlighted his support for the sector.

“Bitcoin mining could be our last line of defense against a CBDC. Biden’s hatred of Bitcoin only helps China, Russia and the Radical Communist Left. We want all remaining Bitcoins to be MADE IN THE USA!!! This will help us to be ENERGY DOMINANT!!!”, he wrote.

At the time of publication, the price of Bitcoin was quoted at US$64,253.61, down 1.1% in the last 24 hours.
