Donald Trump’s Official Republican Platform Pledges to Halt Crypto ‘Crackdown’ in U.S.

Former President Donald Trump’s Republican Party has officially adopted a platform that would seek to support cryptocurrency innovation, according to the document released Monday by the Republican National Committee.

The platform is meant to lay out the party’s priorities as presumptive presidential nominee Trump and Republican congressional candidates head into the November election, and it reflects Trump and other GOP politicians’ rising interest in digital assets.

“Republicans will end Democrats’ unlawful and unAmerican Crypto crackdown and oppose the creation of a Central Bank Digital Currency,” according to the document. “We will defend the right to mine Bitcoin, and ensure every American has the right to self-custody of their Digital Assets, and transact free from Government Surveillance and Control.”
