As the US presidential elections are near, candidates are strengthening their roots in the US financial market, especially the crypto sector. On June 6, at a San Francisco Fundraiser, Donald Trump declared himself a ‘Crypto President’ and raised over $12 Million from a crypto campaign.      

Donald Trump’s Fundraising  

The San Francisco fundraiser was hosted by tech venture capitalists David Sacks and Chamath Palihapitiya on Thursday. The event had many giant crypto players like Coinbase executives and the Winklevoss twins. 

At the event, Trump again supported Bitcoin (BTC) and the cryptocurrency sector while raising over $12 Million. Wu Blockchain shared the event highlights over X.    

Another incident that drew the attention of individuals to the event was Trump’s words. He declared himself a ‘Crypto President’ and commented on Joe Biden and Gary Gensler.

“The Biden-Gensler crusade against crypto will grind to a halt within one hour of a second Trump administration,” the former US president stated.

Nevertheless, SEC’s spot Ethereum ETFs approval and Biden’s enhanced interaction with crypto industry players showcase their interest in the crypto sector.

In May, Trump declared acceptance of cryptocurrencies for the election campaign to mitigate the US government’s involvement in financial decision-making. With the motive to make America great and pro-player in Crypto, Trump comes forward.

BTC, Ethereum (ETH), Solana (SOL), Shiba Inu (SHIB), and Dogecoin (DOGE) are some major digital assets accepted by the election campaigns. Moreover, before declaring himself as ‘Crypto President,’ Trump publicized himself as a ‘crypto candidate’ in the Mar-a-Lago event.
