Donald Trump Presidential Campaign Receives Modest Crypto Donations

These donations, which equate to less than one Bitcoin at the current exchange rate, include assets tracked on Ethereum, Polygon, and Base networks, but exclude off-chain donations made through exchanges such as Coinbase and Gemini. Comprehensive figures, including off-chain donations, will be available after the Donald Trump presidential campaign reports to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) at the end of the month.
