Robert Valentine, head of the Netherlands’ Libertarian Party, has installed a series of billboards in support of the cryptocurrency before the election later this week.

In a photo posted on Twitter by Valentine, the leader of the Liberal Party is shown with a laser eye over a message that says: “Bitcoin is the future.” The party is one of 37 candidates for seats in the Dutch House of Representatives, which will be held in parliamentary elections on 17 March.

“I wanted to have something special and show people that we have embraced Bitcoin as the solution to the revolution,” Valentine said in an interview with Crypto YouTuber BitcoinMeister. “We want to make fundamental changes to the system, and Bitcoin and blockchain can help.”

Any political party in the Netherlands can get one seat in the House of Representatives for every 0.67% of the vote. The country is home to over 17 million people, of which almost 12.8 million registered to vote in the last election in 2017, which means that the Liberal Party probably needs 70,000 to 90,000 support to get another seat. … The party currently has no seats in the House of Representatives; four years ago it won only 0.01% of the vote.

The Liberal Party has openly declared its support for Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies and was one of the first political parties to start accepting cryptocurrency donations in 2013. The Dutch branch of the party said: “Both gold and bitcoin meet. stablecoin criteria. “.

Changing profile pictures with the inclusion of “laser eyes” has become quite popular among prominent representatives of the crypto space, whether it is a symbol of acceptance or a generally growing mood. The laser-eyed characters include Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary, US Senator Cynthia Loomis from Wyoming, and Tesla boss Elon Musk.
