Approximately 73% of US voters believe that presidential candidates should be knowledgeable about innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and cryptocurrency, according to a recent survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of Grayscale Investments. The survey, which included 2,090 adults and was conducted from November 27 to 29, found that the majority of respondents agreed that candidates should have an informed perspective on these emerging technologies. While some presidential candidates, like Republican Vivek Ramaswamy, have made digital assets a central focus of their campaigns, it remains to be seen if this issue will become a mainstream topic of debate. The Grayscale poll also revealed that cryptocurrency is a relevant topic for Americans in the 2024 elections, with inflation being identified as the most pressing problem by 26% of respondents. Among those who were already familiar with cryptocurrency, approximately 40% expressed increased interest in owning Bitcoin due to concerns about inflation and the current state of the economy. However, a similar percentage of respondents who were not familiar with crypto expressed decreased interest. Grayscale noted that historically, inflation and economic concerns have generated interest in assets like Bitcoin, but there is a need for more education to help a broader audience understand nascent technologies like Bitcoin for greater mainstream adoption. The first primaries for the 2024 US presidential election are scheduled to be held in New Hampshire in January, providing an initial glimpse into how the election may unfold. The Stand With Crypto campaign recently hosted a presidential forum in the state, but only three candidates attended, all of whom are considered longshots for their party's nomination. It is worth mentioning that there have been some crypto-friendly presidential candidates in the US, such as Vivek Ramaswamy, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and Ron DeSantis, who have shown support for cryptocurrencies and even accepted Bitcoin contributions for their campaigns.
