Former United States President Donald Trump insists that the country must not settle for anything but the top position in the cryptocurrency industry. Trump expressed his strong support for the burgeoning sector, stating he is “very open-minded” to all things related to it.

In a May 25 post on Truth Social, the social media platform owned by Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), Donald Trump declared, “Our country must be the leader in the field, there is no second place.” He emphasized his positive and open-minded stance towards cryptocurrency companies and the entire industry.

Donald Trump’s remarks came ahead of his scheduled speech at the Libertarian Party’s National Convention in Washington on the same day. In his comments, he also criticized current President Joe Biden, his opponent in the upcoming 2024 presidential race, with the election set for November 4.

Donald Trump’s recent positive attitude towards cryptocurrency has raised expectations within the industry regarding his potential victory. According to Polymarket, a New York-based crypto prediction platform, Trump has a 56% chance of winning the election, compared to Joe Biden’s 38% chance.

This development follows Trump’s announcement that his presidential campaign will accept cryptocurrency donations. On May 21, the Trump 2024 campaign launched a fundraising page allowing eligible individuals to donate in crypto using the Coinbase Commerce product. The website featured logos for Bitcoin, Ether, Dogecoin, Shiba Inu, XRP, USD Coin, Solana (SOL), and 0x (ZRX).

In addition to his public endorsements of cryptocurrency, Donald Trump has reportedly engaged with crypto enthusiasts. Cointelegraph reported that individuals who purchased Trump’s “Mugshot” non-fungible tokens (NFTs) were given the opportunity to dine with him on May 8 at his Mar-a-Lago residence. This dinner was part of the agreement for purchasing the digital trading cards, which feature his mugshot taken during his surrender at the Fulton County Jail in Georgia.
