President Donald Trump is reportedly in talks to speak at the year’s largest Bitcoin convention in July.

A new report by Axios noted Trump’s potential presence at the July 25-27 event in Nashville, Tennessee, just one week following the Republican National Convention.

Trump’s addition to the lineup would place him alongside other top conservatives highlighting the event, including former GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, and Tennessee Sens. Marsha Blackburn and Bill Hagerty. Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is also scheduled to appear at the event.

The 45th president has made many moves to attract cryptocurrency investors during his campaign. He recently became the first presidential candidate to accept cryptocurrency donations.

“I will end Joe Biden’s war on crypto,” Trump said during his recent rally in Wisconsin. “We will ensure that the future of crypto and the future of Bitcoin will be made in America.”

Cryptocurrency investor Tyler Winklevoss recently donated $1 million in Bitcoin to Trump. He also publicly shared the reasons behind his donation in a social media post to X.

“President Donald J. Trump is the pro-Bitcoin, pro-crypto, and pro-business choice. This is not even remotely open for debate. Anyone who tells you otherwise is severely misinformed, delusional, or not telling the truth,” Winklevoss wrote in his post.

“It’s time to take our country back. It’s time for the crypto army to send a message to Washington. That attacking us is political suicide. This is why I will be casting my vote for President Trump in November and I hope you will too. Onward!” he added.

Trump also met with cryptocurrency leaders at a Mar-a-Lago gathering this month. He highlighted his positive approach toward the industry in contrast with Joe Biden’s, which he referred to as a “crusade to crush crypto.”

A coalition of crypto mining companies also launched a bitcoin-focused Political Action Committee (PAC) following the meeting with Trump. The Bitcoin Voter Project reportedly has $5 million in funding and is expected to grow.
