  • Some U.S. presidential candidates will be attending Coinbase’s crypto forum.
  • The forum comes ahead of the New Hampshire Presidential Primary.
  • The candidates are set to discuss various crypto issues in front of voters.

In September, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong predicted that crypto policy would take center stage in the upcoming 2024 U.S. presidential election.

While sharing the prophecy, Armstrong noted that Coinbase’s role in the crypto industry had evolved beyond an exchange. True to his assertion, the exchange has taken the driver’s seat in holding politicians’ feet to the fire and making them publicize their position on crypto.

Following the launch of the 14-month “Stand With Crypto” initiative to lobby U.S. lawmakers on digital assets, Coinbase has invited politicians to discuss cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology in the Crypto Presidential Forum, slated for December 11.

Three Presidential Candidates Confirm Attendance

As of December 5, the forum’s website indicated that three presidential candidates have confirmed to attend the December 11 forum, including Democratic aspirant Dean Phillips and Republicans Asa Hutchinson and Vivek Ramaswamy.

Other candidates invited but not confirmed their attendance include former President Donald Trump, independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr, and Republicans Ron DeSantis, Doug Burgum, Chris Christie, and Doug Burgum.

The candidates will speak at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics and are expected to address a range of crypto policies before the New Hampshire Presidential Primary.

“This special opportunity allows you to hear from presidential candidates and will provide candidates with a venue to address the crypto and blockchain community in New Hampshire, a community that exceeds 52 million Americans nationwide, including a significant 15% of New Hampshire adults who hold crypto,” the forum’s website read.

While some candidates like Robert F. Kennedy Jr and Vivek Ramaswamy have been vocal about digital assets in their campaigns, others like Trump rarely share their sentiments on crypto and blockchain.

As for President Joe Biden, although he is expected to run again, the forum didn’t mention whether he was invited or declined to participate.
