Brock Pierce–philanthropist, entrepreneur, crypto twitter mainstay, and co-founder of the EOS Alliance, Block.one, Blockchain Capital, Mastercoin, and stablecoin issuer Tether–has an important announcement for the people of the United States and the world: as of Monday, July 6th, Brock has entered the race for the US Presidential office with the hashtag #BrocktheVote.
Pierce’s announcement isn’t the only unorthodox third-party presidential announcement to come over the course of this race, or even over the course of this weekend: on July 5th, none other than rapper Kanye West announced on Twitter that he would be running for office. He was immediately endorsed by technologist and entrepreneur Elon Musk, who tweeted, “you have my full support!” in response to Ye’s announcement.

A campaign of “conscious capitalism”
Pierce, who describes himself as a “conscious capitalist”, seems to be running on a future-positive, tech-focused platform: “COVID-19 has brought humanity together in a way where we can reassess our values and decide what freedom really means to us,” he said in a campaign advertisement on YouTube. “Technology should be embraced, not feared. It is here to enhance our institutions and improve our lives.”
Now that I am running for President of the United States – I’d like to make one thing clear: 2020 gets better from here.
