Donald Trump addresses pro-crypto voters on social media

Per a report from Washington-based Politico, crypto is used by a fraction of the voters in America. Despite this it has an outsized impact on US politics. Cryptocurrency firms and groups are preparing to spend over $80 million in 2024 elections, per the report. 

The Federal Reserve’s May 2024 report on “Economic Well-being of US households” shows that only 7 percent of adults held or used cryptocurrency in 2023, a decline of 5 percentage points from 2021. 

US Presidential candidate Trump posted on his Truth Social account,

I am very positive and open minded to cryptocurrency companies and all things related to this new and burgeoning industry. Our country must be the leader in the field and there is no second place.

Trump supports US voters’ right to self custody of crypto and has taken a pro-crypto stance in the elections, per his posts on social media, and his statements when addressing rallies. 

The Polymarket prediction platform shows that there is 56% chance of former President Trump winning the US election.
