๐Ÿ’ธ Trump Builds On His Pro-Crypto Stance

Donald Trump formally announced himself as the "Pro-Crypto" presidential candidate at a rally in San Francisco this past weekend.

And the former president is doubling down on that stance.

What Happened?

Last night on Truth Social, Donald Trump shared the following:

"Bitcoin mining may be our last line of defense against a CBDC...We want all the remaining Bitcoin to be made in the USA!!!"

Of course the ex-President is talking about Bitcoin Mining in this context as Bitcoin is only created as rewards for processing blocks via mining.

The comments came after Trump met with execs from bitcoin mining firms earlier in the day. 

He went on to mention that this would help the USA be "energy dominant." 

Market Response

Checking in on the election market on Polymarket, odds are mostly unchanged.

Trump still holds a 56% to 34% lead over Biden.

Though notably Biden's odds of dropping out of the election are up to 23% this week.

In the crypto markets:

  • TRUMP +3% to $605M (clear PoliFi leader)
  • MAGA +15% to $97M
  • boden +16% to $134M
  • tremp even at $100M

So some movement but not a ton following the comments.

Holders of these PoliFi coins have to be happy with crypto's place in the current rhetoric, with sound bytes and quotes coming out almost daily at this point.

Expect that trend to continue as Trump continues to make crypto a primary campaign issue.
