After a failed U.S. presidential bid, crypto entrepreneur Brock Pierce said that he is getting back into politics, and has filled a “statement of organization” with the U.S. Federal Election Commission.
- In an Instagram post, Pierce said that he is weighing running for the seat of retiring Senator Patrick Leahy (D) of Vermont and that the filing allows him to start raising campaign money.
- The co-founder of blockchain software company Block.One announced a presidential bid in July last year as an independent, but missed filing deadlines in several states to place his name on the ballot. He was also served at a campaign rally in September 2020 with a lawsuit alleging securities fraud.
- Pierce has also co-founded other crypto projects including stablecoin tether (originally called Realcoin) and Blockchain Capital, a venture capital firm.
- As a child actor Pierce appeared in several Disney films including “The Mighty Ducks” and “First Kid.”
