Joe Biden’s Campaign Is Considering Accepting Crypto Donations Like Donald Trump

In a bid to project a friendlier attitude towards a growing demographic, President Joe Biden is reportedly considering accepting political donations in crypto.

Ahead of the all-important presidential election, President Biden’s campaign is considering accepting crypto donations using the services of cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase.

Coinbase Commerce, a service enabling merchants to accept various cryptocurrencies, already facilitates crypto donations for presumptive Republican candidate Donald Trump. His campaign started accepting digital currency contributions last month.

The Biden campaign’s talks are part of efforts to engage crypto-focused voters ahead of an election that experts believe will be closely contested.

Pro-cryptocurrency donors have been mobilizing, with crypto-backed super PACs raising a $100 million war chest, according to Public Citizen.

The potential acceptance of cryptocurrency donations by Biden’s campaign comes at a critical time. 

Last week, Biden vetoed a bipartisan bill aimed at overturning the SEC’s crypto custody rules. This decision was met with criticism from the crypto community, which saw it as a hindrance to the industry’s growth in the U.S.

Billionaire Mark Cuban recently suggested that cryptocurrency could play a pivotal role in the 2024 election, potentially tipping the scales in favor of Trump. 

Over the last month, Trump’s campaign has taken a drastic pro-cryptocurrency pivot, a departure from his earlier positions.

According to the decentralized prediction platform PolyMarket, Trump has a 56% chance of winning the elections against Biden’s 35%.
