Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang Discusses His Plan for Cryptocurrencies

• by Jamie Redman

Yang's recent blog post called "Regulating technology firms in the 21st century," explains how the candidate believes current American legislators are out of touch with innovative technologies.

The 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate Andrew Yang wholeheartedly believes technology has outpaced the American government's understanding of it. In a blog post written on Thursday, Yang wrote that the government allows giant tech companies to thrive, but falls short on protecting users from the same firms scouring data.

Yang highlighted that during the congressional hearings with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the meetings "exposed the lack of basic understanding of technology by members of our Congress."
