In the meantime, cryptocurrency’s status in the United Kingdom might be changing soon, as Liz Truss has won the election for Prime Minister there, which leaves everything unclear about whether or not future policies for digital assets would be implemented, according to Bloomberg.
According to the report, Truss has been very quiet so far about what she might have planned for virtual currencies.
Rishi Sunak, who had been a vocal advocate for cryptocurrency in his role, was defeated by her. According to the report, Sunak intended to strengthen the United Kingdom’s reputation as a leader in financial technology.
According to the report, Truss will inherit a new government, which will include a cost-of-living crisis and a recession.
According to CoinDesk, Michael Saylor, the previous CEO of MicroStrategy, is looking into ways to onboard large numbers of people into the Lightning network.
