73% of US Voters Favor Presidential Candidates with Tech Savvy, Including Crypto

today 12/21/2023
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.

Crypto Scam Based on TV Show The Boy’s Word Sweeping Russia, Warns Central Bank

Russia's Central Bank has issued a warning to citizens about a cryptocurrency scam project that is based on the popular TV show The Boy's Word: Blood on the Asphalt. The project, which also goes by the name "The Boy's Word," is described by the Central Bank as a pyramid scheme that has no official affiliation with the show. The project asks investors to pay $10 in exchange for tokens that supposedly represent the project's own cryptocurrency. The scammers promise high returns of up to 25% per day. Advertisements for the project are circulating on social media platforms, featuring music and images from the TV show, as well as stolen pictures from legitimate cryptocurrency providers' websites. The Central Bank warns that the scammers will eventually disappear with the investors' money, as the project is not licensed to operate in the financial market. Only financial organizations with permits from the Central Bank can request public investment. The project has been added to the Central Bank's list of probable financial pyramid schemes. The TV show has gained significant popularity in Russia and other Russian-speaking countries, surpassing searches related to the war in Ukraine and special military operations.

New Bitcoin ETFs See Record Daily Flows As Total BTC Holdings Rise to $3 Billion

Newly launched Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) experienced their highest daily inflows on the fourth day of trading, with $913.6 million invested on Wednesday. This influx of capital brings the total assets under management for all recently launched ETFs to $2.9 billion. These figures, provided by Bloomberg ETF analyst Eric Balchunas, do not include flows related to the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), which is the largest and most actively traded Bitcoin ETF. The GBTC recently converted into an ETF on January 11 after accumulating over 600,000 BTC prior to conversion. Since the conversion, the fund has experienced consistent outflows as investors sell their long-held BTC or move to newer and cheaper Bitcoin ETFs offered by companies like BlackRock and Fidelity. On Wednesday, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust saw $450.6 million in outflows, bringing its total net outflows since the ETF conversion to $1.6 billion. Overall, all Bitcoin ETFs have seen net flows of $1.2 billion. The first day of the ETF launch remains the day with the highest Bitcoin ETF inflows when including GBTC, though this includes seed capital such as Bitwise's initial $200 million contribution. Other Bitcoin funds and investment products have also suffered following the ETF launch, including the ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF (BITO) and MicroStrategy, which has seen a 25% drop in value since last Thursday. Bitcoin itself has fallen approximately 11% to $41,250 since last week, and newly launched ETFs like the iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT) have yet to experience a positive trading day. Coinbase, the custodian for most ETF providers, has also seen a 19% decline in value year to date.

A crypto trader has made $1 million in just 10 days by investing in TROLL tokens following Elon Musk's bio update.

The trader turned $300 into $1.03 million by selling some of the TROLL tokens. Despite a slight decrease in TROLL's value, the trader still maintains a significant gain. Other traders have also profited from the price rally of TROLL tokens, with one trader making a $2.7 million profit from a $30,000 investment.
