The Arizona State Senator, Wendy Rogers was settling below the crypto spotlight following her interest in legalizing Bitcoin. Now, the State Senator was seen speaking about other cryptocurrencies like Shiba Inu [SHIB], Dogecoin [DOGE] as well as XRP.

Following the footsteps of El Salvador, Rogers proposed a bill that gives Bitcoin a legal stature. However, several suggested that the approval of this bill was highly unlikely as the US Constitution restricts states to formulate their own legal tender. Despite this suspicion, Rogers was pushing towards making Arizona a crypto hub.

Earlier today, the State Senator even pushed for a bill that prohibits taxation of Bitcoin and blockchain tech.

Soon after this, Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers was flooded with crypto recommendations from an array of communities. The Shiba Inu and Dogecoin communities seemed to be the strongest as they managed to amass the attention of the State Senator.

Rogers tweeted,

“I don’t understand the SHIB. I don’t understand the Doge. But I do understand freedom. People should be able to buy whatever digital coins they want. Even if they aren’t as good as #Bitcoin.”

Despite suggesting that SHIB and DOGE weren’t as good as the OG cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, she wanted people to be able to buy what they wanted. Rogers was undoubtedly rooting for what Bitcoin stands for – financial freedom.

‘What is XRP?’ – Arizona State Senator asks

The XRP community certainly did not hold back. While the feud between Ripple and the Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC] of the United States, the XRP community decided to pitch the altcoin to Rogers.

Addressing all the hype around XRP, the Arizona State Senator tweeted,

Furthermore, Rogers is most likely going to lay her focus on implementing Bitcoin into Arizona’s system. Therefore, the chances of meme coins or even XRP landing a similar spot were far-fetched.

Apart from this, the International Monetary Fund [IMF] scare also got several second-guessing the bill.
