LATEST: Bitcoin’s Key Role in US National Strategy, Says Space Force Officer

U.S. Space Force Major Jason Lowery urges the U.S. military to explore Bitcoin’s proof-of-work systems for national defense. In a detailed letter to the Defense Innovation Board, he argues Bitcoin’s potential extends beyond finance, offering robust cybersecurity against digital warfare. Lowery suggests Bitcoin’s resource-intensive nature could deter cyberattacks, similar to physical military assets. He stresses this approach is vital for the U.S. to remain a global leader in an increasingly interconnected, digital world. Lowery’s proposal, if adopted, could mark a significant shift in national cybersecurity strategy.
