The Trump campaign announced on Tuesday that it would begin accepting cryptocurrency donations, marking the first time a major party presidential nominee has done this.

This decision is in line with Trump’s broader agenda, which the campaign described as valuing “freedom over socialistic government control.”

Trump Campaign Vows to Build “Crypto Army”

According to a campaign press release, Trump supporters can now donate using “any cryptocurrency accepted through the Coinbase Commerce product.” The campaign assured that all cryptocurrency contributions would adhere to Federal Election Commission regulations, including contribution limits and disclosure requirements.

The campaign referenced Senator Elizabeth Warren, a surrogate for President Joe Biden, who has been vocal about her opposition to cryptocurrencies. In a reelection ad posted on X in March 2023, Warren declared she was building an “anti-crypto army” to restrict Americans’ financial choices.

In response, the Trump campaign declared, “MAGA supporters, now with a new cryptocurrency option, will build a crypto army moving the campaign to victory on November 5th!”

Weeks ago, at a Mar-a-Lago gala, Trump declared himself “crypto’s candidate,” pushing digital currencies into the spotlight for the 2024 campaign.

In December 2022, Trump sold a limited run of NFT trading cards that could be purchased with cryptocurrency. Earlier this month, he hosted a lavish dinner for his NFT backers at his Mar-a-Lago club, where he reinforced his pro-crypto stance.

“If you’re in favor of crypto, you’re gonna vote for Trump because they want to end it,” he said at the event, referring to the Democratic Party and President Joe Biden. Trump also pledged to ensure his campaign could accept crypto donations.
