Report Reveals Crypto Could Be Decisive Factor in Upcoming US Presidential Election


The Harris Poll recently conducted a survey commissioned by Grayscale Investments which revealed a major shift in the priorities of American voters. 73% of the participants said the U.S. presidential candidates must have a comprehensive understanding of modern technologies, such as artificial intelligence and cryptocurrency.

The survey involved 2,090 adults and not only showed a rise in technology interest but also highlighted the importance of digital assets in the 2024 elections. This is especially true due to the 26% of respondents who identified inflation as an urgent issue.

Out of those who were familiar with cryptocurrency, 40% expressed greater interest in Bitcoin given the current economy. On the other hand, those without much knowledge of digital currencies showed less enthusiasm, demonstrating the need for technological education.

The political landscape is changing with these voter priorities. Digital assets have been at the center of some candidate campaigns, such as that of Republican Vivek Ramaswamy, but the focus may shift as the election draws nearer.

Grayscale’s analysis suggests that economic factors like inflation have historically created a demand for alternative investments like Bitcoin. There is also a clear correlation between being informed about Bitcoin and viewing it as a viable macro asset, which emphasizes the need for greater public education on emerging technologies.

The term “Stand With Crypto” was recently used at a campaign forum in New Hampshire, attended by three presidential candidates, all considered longshots. This further emphasizes the increasing link between technology and politics with the upcoming 2024 U.S. Presidential Election.
