“We should support a presidential candidate who embraces cryptocurrency,” Sun wrote in a statement on Sunday . “We need to show the candidate that the cryptocurrency community, companies and protocols are important players whose voices should be heard and whose interests should be protected.”

On Monday, the TRON founder continued his push for digital asset advocacy in another X-post, stating that the “cryptocurrency community should come together to send a clear signal to society that this is an industry with a unified voice.”

“The interests of the cryptocurrency industry should be promoted and protected,” he added. “If a candidate fails to do so, they risk losing the votes of 50 million cryptocurrency users and potentially losing the election.”

Donald Trump and Joe Biden are in a neck-and-neck race

Sun’s comments come amid rising political tensions ahead of the U.S. presidential election in November, with Republican frontrunner Donald Trump largely welcoming the cryptocurrency sector.

He announced that if elected, he would pardon Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht: “I am very positive and open-minded about cryptocurrency companies and everything related to this new and burgeoning industry.

Our country must be a leader in this area,” Trump said in a post on Truth Social. “There is no second place. On the other hand, corrupt Joe Biden, the worst president in the history of our country, wants it to die a slow and painful death.

Meanwhile, incumbent President Joe Biden has come out in favor of regulating digital assets and recently announced that he would veto the United States Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) SAB121. Just last week, a message from the Biden campaign to its supporters revealed that Trump’s campaign raised 50 million USD at a gala last month, surpassing the incumbent president’s campaign funds. “Folks, things couldn’t be more serious,” Biden’s message read.

“Cryptocurrency executives and oil barons are coming out of hiding for Trump, handing out 800,000 USD checks at glitzy events. “Cryptocurrencies could play a major role in the 2024 presidential election, with recent data showing that digital assets are a key issue for 20% of voters in swing states. Trump and Biden are neck and neck in polls ahead of the November election.
