Arizona State Senator: Shiba Inu (SHIB) and Dogecoin (DOGE) Represent Freedom

Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers has recently claimed that cryptocurrencies such as the two largest meme tokens Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB) represent the freedom that makes people buy whatever they want.

Rogers made this known via a tweet on 1st February. In the tweet, the Senator said she doesn’t understand both Shiba Inu (SHIB) and Dogecoin (DOGE) but understands freedom, which is the reason why people should be able to buy whatever digital assets they want.

This statement came after Rogers introduced a bill to make Bitcoin (BTC) a legal tender in Arizona about a week ago.

Wendy Rogers tweeted, “I don’t understand the SHIB. I don’t understand the Doge. But I do understand freedom. People should be able to buy whatever digital coins they want. Even if they aren’t as good as Bitcoin.”

XRP Community Members Needed Recognition

On Monday, the pro-Trump Republican, who has gained notoriety for being part of the election-denial movement and making a slew of headline-grabbing inflammatory comments, also proposed exempting Bitcoin and other digital currencies from property taxes.

Feeling left out, members of the XRP community started spamming Rogers’s Twitter account with mentions of the Ripple-affiliated cryptocurrency XRP. The politician ended up asking her followers about the controversial cryptocurrency to the great delight of the community.

Wendy Rogers tweeted, “Every time I say Bitcoin, why do people keep saying XRP? What is XRP?

As expected, her tweet ignited yet another tired debate between the proponents of Bitcoin and XRP. On-chain analyst Dylan LeClair was quick to call the latter “a scam,” enraging the XRP Army.

Dylan LeClair responded, “A scam Wendy. A centralized company (Ripple) created XRP and have dumped billions of these tokens on uninformed retail investors.”
