Former United States President Donald Trump, in a recent interview with CNBC, hinted at a potentially favorable stance towards cryptocurrency should he make a return to the White House.

During the conversation, which was published on March 11, Trump shared his perspective on Bitcoin (CRYPTO:BTC) and the broader crypto market, noting its significant presence and admitting to engaging in transactions involving crypto for leisure and profit.

Despite not owning Bitcoin himself, Trump mentioned that he allows payments in the cryptocurrency, particularly highlighting a successful venture involving a limited release of 1,000 branded sneakers, many of which were purchased using crypto.

The ex-president expressed his astonishment at the sums of money involved in these transactions, indicating both a personal and policy openness to digital currencies in his potential future administration.
