Governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp is to appoint Kelly Loeffler, CEO of Bitcoin futures platform Bakkt, for a United States Senate seat next week.

On Nov. 29, Atlanta’s news outlet AJC reported that Kemp plans to choose Loeffler in a bid to expand the appeal of the Republican party to women.

President Not A Fan Of Bakkt CEO

If nominated the CEO of Bakkt will become just the second woman to serve in the United States Senate from Georgia.

Loeffler adds that she wants to strengthen the border, shut down drug and human trafficking, lower healthcare costs and protect the national interests of the U.S. She added:

“If chosen, I will stand with President Trump, Senator David Perdue, and you to Keep America Great.”

However, President Donald Trump reportedly chose U.S. representative Doug Collins instead. Republican leaders have chosen Collins given his strong support for Trump, gun rights and anti-abortion efforts. 

Trump is also no fan of Bitcoin. He smeared cryptocurrencies in a July tweet, reducing their use to a form of dangerous leverage for criminals.

Meanwhile, interest in Bitcoin is seemingly increasing with Bakkt having set another new daily volume record trading $42.5M in Bitcoin futures contracts on Nov. 28.
