Easily the largest group of bitcoin holders are those who have little or no deep political stance on it at all. Most in this group, which includes many institutional adopters and those crossing over from Wall Street, are interested strictly in bitcoin’s record of gaining value in dollar terms. I would also include many pure technocrats here, such as those interested in blockchain’s potential to improve the efficiency of cross-border payments. As researcher David Golumbia has rightly pointed out, though, both of these “apolitical” groups can be drawn towards more right-wing bitcoin rhetoric.
