Former Trump Aide Mick Joins Crypto Firm

Astra Protocol has hired Mick Mulvaney as a strategic advisor who is the former White House acting chief of staff for former US President Donald Trump.

Astra Protocol is a crypto firm that helps investors deal with compliance regulation.

Mick will be advising on U.S. strategy in decentralized finance (DeFi) and also working with the Swiss startup.

The firm is going to offer a fully decentralized compliance layer. Astra is trying to bring crypto and blockchain into the mainstream financial system.

Mulvaney stated that he wishes to use crypto other than Apple Pay, but it has to be in the mainstream, which is going to happen soon if we check regulatory boxes.

The former European Commissioner, Phil Hogan, supported that adding Mulvaney would enable Astra Protocol to explore the various segments of the regulatory environment.

Mick wants to solve the problem rather than understand the technology.
