On May 9, other tokens with political overtones saw a surge as well. Donal Tremp (TREMP), for example, saw triple gains over the previous day, rising 136%. Over the same time frame, the Independence Token (RFKJ), which is intended to aid Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in his presidential campaign, saw a 24.4% increase.

In response to Trump’s comments, Joe Boden (BODEN), a memecoin that plays on the misspelling of U.S. President Joe Biden’s name, saw a 22% increase in value on March 8 despite only being up 1% on May 9.


On May 8, Trump gave a speech at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, during an NFT dinner he hosted for the owners of his digital collectibles.

When questioned if cryptocurrency donations would be accepted for his campaign, he responded,

”Can we donate to the Trump campaign using crypto? I believe the answer is yes. If you can’t, I’ll make sure you can.”

Regarding the cryptocurrency market, Trump assured the guests that he was in favor of it, claiming that both the current administration of the United States and U.S. President Joe Biden are against it:

“I’m fine with it. I want to make sure it’s good and solid and everything else. But I’m good with it. And if you like crypto in any form (and it comes in many different forms), if you are in favor of crypto, you better vote for Trump.”

In 2024, memecoins have surged to become the most lucrative trend of Q1. Pseudonymous X user Crypto Koryo reports that CoinMarketCap recorded an all-time high of 138 ERC-20 memecoins in April 2024, marking a staggering 567% increase from the 18 listed in April 2023, according to the analyst:

“The number of memecoin erc-20 tokens is going parabolic in 2024. Last month, 138 new memecoins registered on CoinMarketCap, compared to 18 in April 2023.“

According to reports, CoinMarketCap only includes 10% of all tokens, so the total could be much higher, said Crypto Koryo.


More than 2,230 memecoins with a combined market capitalization of over $52,325 were listed on CoinMarketCap at the time of publication, accounting for 2.15% of the value of the global cryptocurrency market.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.
