Additionally, in a recent interview, ARK Invest CEO Cathie Wood expressed her intention to vote for Trump. She said he would be the best choice for the US economy.

Billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban is skeptical about Trump and Biden’s understanding of crypto. However, he believes Biden may lose ground due to Gary Gensler, the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s chief, who is well-known for his tough stance on the crypto industry.
