Dutch Political Candidate Puts up ‘Bitcoin Is the Future’ Billboards With Laser Eyes

Valentin is currently leader of the Libertarian Party (LP) in the Netherlands and was the party’s candidate in the 2017 general election. However, his party did not win any seats and received only 1,492 votes. He is also one of the founders of the Netherlands Institute of Praxeology, a think tank dedicated to the well-being of humanity by promoting praxeology-based policies.

Eyeball laser memos have been flooding the bitcoin community since February, meaning everyone with eyes on them is expecting the bitcoin price to reach $100,000. Politicians, celebrities and investors look at their profile pictures with a laser. These include pro-bitcoin US Senator Cynthia Lummis, who temporarily gave a meme, and Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary, who activated his laser eyes after announcing that he had put 3% of his portfolio into bitcoin.

The Dutch Libertarian Party has long supported bitcoin. In 2014, it became the first political party in the Netherlands to accept donations in BTC. A Twitter user made his opinion known:

The Dutch Liberal Party is the only political party that takes entrepreneurs, civil liberties and Bitcoin seriously.

He added: It’s time for a new way of thinking. Choose LP. Buy bitcoins. Defend your freedom and put an end to big government.

In the Netherlands, De Nederlandsche Bank NV (DNB) regulates the cryptocurrency sector. Last November, the central bank told Bitcoin.com News that 39 companies had applied to offer cryptocurrency services under the new regulations.
