The Republican National Committee has officially adopted a pro-crypto stance in its latest platform, aligning with former President Donald Trump's endorsement of digital assets.

The platform pledges to halt what it calls the Democrats' "unlawful Crypto crackdown" and opposes the creation of a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).

Emphasising digital asset rights, it promises to defend Bitcoin (CRYPTO:BTC) mining, advocate for self-custody of digital assets, and ensure transactions free from government surveillance.

Trump's personal involvement in cryptocurrencies, including launching his own NFTs and accepting crypto donations, underscores the party's commitment to crypto innovation.

The stance contrasts with ongoing global discussions on CBDCs, with Republicans arguing against potential financial surveillance under such systems, despite assurances from Federal Reserve officials.
