Former US President Donald Trump announces his support for cryptocurrency, vowing to prioritise its development if elected as president again.

Trump aims to position the US as a global leader in the digital economy by fostering innovation and progressive regulations. He advocates for the right to self-custody for crypto holders and criticises opponents like Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Trump's campaign also accepts cryptocurrency donations, marking him as the first major party candidate to do so.

With his pro-crypto stance, Trump positions himself as a competitor to incumbent President Joe Biden, whom he criticizes for lacking understanding of digital assets, urging crypto enthusiasts to support his candidacy for driving innovation in the industry.
