WASHINGTON (MarketsXplora) – The Republican Party has officially incorporated support for cryptocurrency companies and holders into its platform for the 2024 U.S. elections, signaling a strategic move to court crypto-friendly voters.

The “Make America Great Again” Republican Party Platform, released on Monday by presumptive nominee Donald Trump’s campaign, pledges to end what it terms an “unlawful and un-American crackdown” on the U.S. crypto industry.

In a comprehensive approach to crypto policy, the GOP platform promises to “defend the right to mine bitcoin” and protect crypto holders’ ability to self-custody their digital assets. The document also takes a firm stance against the development of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs).

“We will defend the right to… transact free from Government Surveillance and Control,” the platform states, underscoring the party’s commitment to financial privacy.

This formal inclusion of crypto-related issues follows a series of pro-crypto gestures from the Trump campaign. In May, at a Washington D.C. political convention, Trump pledged to free Silk Road creator Ross Albright and voiced support for self-custody of digital assets, addressing an enthusiastic crowd that included Libertarians and crypto advocates.

Sources close to the matter reported that Trump subsequently met with several bitcoin miners at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, to discuss crypto mining policies and regulations.

As the 2024 presidential race heats up, the GOP’s embrace of crypto-friendly policies appears to be a calculated effort to differentiate itself and appeal to a growing demographic of tech-savvy voters concerned about financial freedom and innovation.
