  • An excerpt from Bitfinex analysis highlights the impact of policy discussions on crypto markets during the Biden-Trump debate.

Political meme coins brace for high volatility as the U.S. presidential debate looms, with significant market movements expected amidst policy discussions.

Projected Volatility for PolitiFi Tokens

Over recent months, the cryptocurrency market has seen the introduction of several tokens themed around political figures like Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Examples include Super Trump (STRUMP), TRUMP, Maga Hat (MAGA) on the BNB Smart Chain, and Solana’s Jeo Boden (BODEN) and Doland Tremp (TREMP).

These meme coins have attracted substantial market attention, accumulating market caps and trading volumes worth millions. According to data from Coingecko’s PolitiFi token category, the collective market cap for these tokens exceeds $1 billion, with a 24-hour trading volume surpassing $256 million.

As the U.S. presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump approaches, set to air live on June 27, their proposed policies will be a focal point. Analysts at Bitfinex predict that topics covering capital gains taxes and cryptocurrency taxation will particularly engage the crypto community and could potentially affect market behavior.

“PolitiFi tokens might experience considerable movements during and after the debate, depending on candidate performances. Discussions on capital gains and specific crypto taxation policies could significantly influence market trends,” noted Bitfinex analysts.

Cryptocurrency Community Backs Trump

The current crypto market is experiencing a downturn with major assets such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) experiencing 10% and 8% declines over the past month, respectively. Likewise, PolitiFi tokens like TRUMP, MAGA, TREMP, and BODEN have faced double-digit losses recently. Rumors of an official DJT token on the Solana network have also contributed to the decline in Trump-related tokens.

Notably, influential figures in the cryptocurrency community have declared their support for Donald Trump, citing his favorable stance towards crypto regulations. Recently, the Winklevoss twins, co-founders of the Gemini exchange, announced their donation of $1 million in BTC each to support Trump’s campaign, emphasizing their intention to vote for him.


In conclusion, as the U.S. presidential debate approaches, significant volatility is anticipated for political-themed meme coins. Traders and investors should closely monitor policy discussions, particularly those relating to capital gains and cryptocurrency taxation. With prominent crypto figures showing support for Donald Trump, his policies could further shape the market’s future trajectory.
