According to the announcement, individuals interested in backing Yang may now send a maximum of $2,500 in cryptocurrency. In order to donate with crypto, backers must be a U.S. citizen or lawfully admitted permanent resident (i.e., green card holder), and must pass a basic KYC provided in the submission portal.
According to his website, Yang’s platform is designed to “create an America of opportunity, freedom, equality, and abundance.” One of his largest focuses is bringing Universal Basic Income for all American adults, no strings attached.
