As the race for the next United States president heats up, many new aspirants continue to declare their intentions for the office with crypto billionaire, Brock Pierce, latest to join the train after Popstar Kanye West.
Pierce, the co-founder of EOS Alliance and crypto billionaire who declared his intention on Twitter, said in a release that he would be running as an Independent candidate for the elections scheduled for Tuesday, November 3.

While talking about his ambition to become president, Pierce said he had spent his entire life creating things from nothing, and he can help others do the same.
“Entrepreneurs are essential to the rebuilding of this nation that we love, and I’m running in the race because I know that together we can help build a pathway towards the rebirth of America we love so much,” he said.
Reportedly, despite the crypto billionaire declaring his intentions, his name is yet to be included in the list of candidates who have filed with the FEC to run for president at the time of compiling this report.

Apart from Pierce, another crypto proponent who has declared interest in the US presidency is John McAfee. The software developer announced interest in the office since June 2018.
McAfee, however, is said to be a controversial individual. Despite being on exile, McAfee has remained opened about him evading taxes and shares bits of his private life, including video excerpts from strip clubs and whatnot.
Brock Pierce, on the other hand, has reportedly been involved in quite a lot of controversies himself. However, both crypto billionaires’ ambitions cannot be thrown overboard as unexpected things can happen in that regard.
