The PACs are part of an expanding network of political action committees centered on the cryptocurrency exchange, which has seen CEOs Bankman-Fried and Salame emerge as some of the largest political donors in recent cycles in the United States.

CNBC reported Friday, citing an anonymous strategist, that Super PACs Web3 Forward and Crypto Innovation aim to spend six figures on advertising for the midterm elections. The advertising campaign will begin in two weeks.

According to Federal Election Commission records, the two Super PACs reported a total of more than $8 million in funding as of the end of September. GMI PAC, an initiative launched by FTX Digital Markets head Ryan Salame, is their principal funder.

Over $11 million has been donated to the group by contributors such as Bankman-Fried, Circle, and investment businesses such as Paradigm, a16z, and Multicoin.

Anthony Scaramucci and his business Skybridge Capital gave a total of $200,000 to Crypto Innovation.
