The first presidential debate between President Joe Biden and his would-be successor Donald Trump failed to mention crypto, triggering a 6% plunge in political meme coins over the past 24 hours.

The absence of discussion around crypto was a disappointment to investors after digital lobbyists had raised millions of dollars to contribute to election campaigns, and after Trump had turn pro-crypto and the Biden administration began softening its hardline stance against the industry. 

Multiple crypto-oriented super Political Action Committees (PACs) have raised around $202.8 million from key industry players. Meanwhile, $93.6 million has already been spent by these PACs to influence the elections. Despite this, the crypto space received no mention during the 90 minute debate.

Polls Show Voters Are Not Too Concerned With Crypto

Gallup polls from May show that voters aren’t too concerned about crypto. The US economy in general, high living costs, the federal budget deficit, unemployment and the gap between the rich and the poor were the biggest economic problems that voters are focusing on, according to the polls.

Although voters seem to prioritize other economic issues above crypto, several industry players still believe that digital assets could be a major factor in the outcome of this election. 

Shark Tank billionaire Mark Cuban has warned Biden that his loyalty to the hardline Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chair Gary Gensler could cost him the White House.
