You'll Never Believe What Senator Elizabeth Warren Just Did

•, by Tyler Durden

After years of vilifying Bitcoin as money for criminals, terrorists, and climate change deniers, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) honored Satoshi Nakamoto for the 15th anniversary of the network's launch with a commemorative flag flown over the United States Capitol, unveiled by NYC's PubKey.

Bitcoin Magazine's Mark Goodwin reports that in an unexpected turn of events, Elizabeth Warren, the long-time adversary of Bitcoin on Capitol Hill, has seen the orange-tinted light and quite literally raised a flag to praise the work of Bitcoin's anonymous creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, celebrating 15 years since the network launched.

In participation of the Capitol Flag Program, Senator Warren's office submitted a request to commemorate Nakamoto's accomplishment of creating the first "truly inclusive financial system," with the colors of the United States being flown above the Capitol on December 18, 2023 – a date known to Bitcoiners as HODL Day.

While the sudden embrace of Bitcoin by the Massachusetts Senator may seem a surprise, her career-long rhetoric about fighting for the financially under-served has finally taken shape within this tangible statement.

As if speaking to her campaign promises to champion the working class negatively affected by corruption within both the government and the banking sector, the certificate produced by the Architect of the Capitol in recognition of the flag notes the "new economic freedoms to populations previously ignored by both private and public institutions" brought forward by Nakamoto's Bitcoin.

The Senator's office filing for the flag flying itself was noticed by friends of Bitcoin MagazinePubKey, who are holding a public event in New York City this evening, February 15, at 6:00 PM EST, to unveil not only the story of the flag, but the flag itself, complete with a dramatized reading of the infamous December 18, 2013 post on BitcoinTalk that immortalized "HODL" within the Bitcoin lexicon from actor, comedian and Bitcoiner T.J. Miller.
