Trump judges cryptocurrency enthusiasts and promises regulatory freedom

In a marked shift, Republican Party presidential candidate Donald Trump has promised to roll back U.S. cryptocurrency regulations, seeking to attract cryptocurrency supporters by accepting donations of digital assets and criticizing the current administration’s restrictive policies.


Trump changes course on cryptocurrencies, promises to protect investors in digital assets


Donald Trump, the Republican presidential candidate in the United States, has made a noteworthy statement in the cryptocurrency sphere. According to CoinGape, his declaration of protecting the rights of cryptocurrency investors and criticism of the Biden government’s approach to digital assets highlight the potential impact of politicians’ positions on the cryptocurrency market.


In his recent presidential campaign speech, the Republican candidate stated: “If you like cryptocurrency in any form… and it comes in many forms… if you are a supporter of cryptocurrencies, you better vote for Trump.”


Presidential candidate Donald Trump has clearly stated that he will not use regulatory power to crack down on Bitcoin and other digital assets. “From what I have observed, it is widely used. “And I’m not sure I’d want to take it back at this point,” he told CNBC last month.


However, Donald Trump’s views on Bitcoin in 2021 differed as he called it a “fraud” and a threat to USD’s place as the global reserve currency. However, he still talks about hedging the dollar. “I want one currency, I want the dollar, I don’t want people to move away from the dollar,” he said.

Trump backs cryptocurrency, clashes with Biden over regulatory approaches


In recent years, Donald Trump has dabbled in digital assets, releasing his NFTs to the market. “People went crazy for these things (NFTs), so a lot of them were bought with this new cryptocurrency and I couldn’t believe the amount,” he stated.


The Bitcoin debate has become prominent as the top two presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Joe Biden, have taken opposing positions. This stark contrast highlights the tension and gravity of the issue.


President Joe Biden has sided with Senator Warren and SEC Chairman Gary Gensler, expressing steadfast support for the SEC’s regulatory approach and an emphasis on regulation through enforcement.


Meanwhile, Donald Trump has taken a different stance. He proposes eliminating the US government’s combative attitude towards cryptocurrency. He also pledged to actively use cryptocurrency and accept campaign donations in the form of digital assets.


Interestingly, some Democrats joined Republicans in passing a resolution to repeal SAB 121. However, the Biden administration rejected this legislation.
