Canadian Member of Parliament (MP) Joël Lightbound advocated for people to study Bitcoin while acknowledging the pseudo-anonymous creator Satoshi Nakamoto on the 15th anniversary of the Bitcoin white paper. Lightbound disclosed that he owns Bitcoin but refrains from advocating for people to buy it. He highlighted that Bitcoin has empowered the underbanked and those in oppressive regimes. Lightbound referenced quotes from former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and current SEC chief Gary Gensler, emphasizing that Gensler’s quote was from 2019 before he became SEC chief. Gensler’s 2019 opinion piece mentioned the potential of Satoshi Nakamoto’s creation to bring about change and economic inclusion. The crypto community had initially been positive about Gensler’s appointment as SEC chief, but his tenure has been controversial and disappointing for them.
