US Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard Bought Crypto at Height of Bull Market

21:10 Saturday , January 12th 2019
U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is running for president of the United States in 2020.
As CCN reported, Tulsi Gabbard bought $1,001 to $15,000 of Ether and Litecoin in December 2017. At the time, the Bitcoin price soared to a record high of $19,500.
It's unclear how much crypto Gabbard currently holds. However, it's likely that she lost some money on her investments amid the ongoing bear market.
Other U.S. lawmakers who invested in crypto include Republican Bob Goodlatte, a 13-term Congressman from Virginia. In 2018, Goodlatte revealed that he held $17,000 to $80,000 worth of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Ether. Goodlatte's son, Bobby Goodlatte Jr., is an angel investor in Coinbase, the largest US-based crypto exchange.
