Trump becomes first major US presidential candidate to accept crypto donations

On Tuesday, Donald Trump for President 2024 announced that it would be accepting donations made with cryptocurrencies for the first time, making him the only major party candidate to do so.

The former president's campaign touted the move as evidence of his commitment to stay up to date with the ever-changing financial landscape.

"This addition to President Trump's already groundbreaking digital fundraising operation marks the first time a major party Presidential nominee has embraced cryptocurrency for donations,"the campaign wrote in a press release, noting that, "contribution limits and disclosure requirements for crypto donations will follow Federal Election Commission regulations."

Those wishing to contribute to Trump with crypto can now do so via the Coinbase Commerce product, which accepts all digital currencies. The campaign went on to note that as president, Trump "reduced regulations and championed innovation in financial technology, while Democrats, like Biden and his official surrogate Elizabeth Warren, continue to believe only government has the answers to how our nation leads the world."
