The campaign headquarters of US President Joe Biden has begun discussions with players in the crypto industry about the possibility of accepting donations for the election campaign in digital currencies.

The Biden campaign has said it is seeking to attract digital asset-focused voters and is discussing cryptocurrency acceptance options on Coinbase Commerce.

The Block, citing sources close to Biden’s circle, note that after criticism and accusations of the current president of creating obstacles to the growth of the US crypto industry, the campaign headquarters decided to demonstrate to the community the White House administration’s readiness to find compromise options.

“People on the Biden team’s outer and inner circle understand that staying silent on cryptocurrency, and ignoring the views of industry participants and digital asset holders, is likely to lose the election,” one of the sources said.

This became especially true after Donald Trump, competing with Biden for the position of the future president, significantly intensified his campaign to create a friendly image for the US crypto community.
