It is increasingly becoming clear that campaign debates in the lead-up to the US presidential election 2024 could feature crypto market regulation. Already, several leaders began speaking about the need for freedom to trade digital assets. While the common perception is that the US economy could potentially face the risk of de-dollarization, several US-based crypto market participants fear the country is already losing its advantage to become a crypto hub. Meanwhile, campaign debates on crypto will only help the digital ecosystem reach a wider audience.
Earlier, CoinGape reported Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a pro-crypto leader, criticized the US administration under Joe Biden for trying to eradicate the crypto market from the United States. He said the Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) are not good for the average American for security reasons. DeSantis, a Republican Party member, is also running for President and had already launched his campaign.
