The high expectation of the crypto community in the United States was aborted a couple of hours ago after lawmakers failed to unanimously support the crypto amendment in the much-talked-about infrastructure bill.
In this regard, Charles Hoskinson, the creator of the emerging smart contract platform, Cardano, has stated that he’s willing to organize a rally in Washington DC to show his solidarity for innovation in the U.S., especially in the cryptocurrency industry.
Hoskinson made this known via a tweet a couple of hours ago. He stated that he’ll call necessary people to make the proposed rally in support of crypto a reality.
Charles Hoskinson tweeted, “I think it’s about time we get a rally going in Washington DC. I’m going to make some phone calls. More on this later.”

Crypto Amendment Blocked in the Senate
As earlier reported, Senators Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and Richard Shelby (R-AL) blocked the trending crypto amendment due to the disagreement over the additional $50 billion military spending.
Slamming the lawmakers marked as failure in the crypto community, Charles Hoskinson said:
“These senators, these 87-year-old living fossils, showed the entire world that they were willing to sell the future of our country’s economy out, if they didn’t get their pork.”
According to the mathematician, there is no intention to keep living in a dying empire and he’s also not willing to leave the country at the moment.
