Previously, this was not the first time Kanye expressed his intention to become president of the United States. Back in November 2019, at the fifth annual Fast Company Innovation Festival in New York City, he said that he planned to run for U.S. president in 2024:
“When I run for president in 2024, we’re going to definitely – yo, whatchu [sic] all laughing at? When I run for president in 2024, we would’ve created so many jobs that, in fact, I ‘ m going to walk … ”
According to the U.S. Constitution, here are the requirements for presidential candidates:

Since Kanye meets all these requirements, he is allowed to declare his candidacy for president. After he has raised or spent more than $ 5,000 for his campaign, he must register with the Federal Election Commission.
In May 2018, Kanye talked about Bitcoin during an interview with American radio presenter “Charlamagne tha God”.
“When you’re acting in love, you’re like a drop of water, and you have the ocean as your army. When you act in fear, it’s just you and your money. Now you can take your money and put it in Bitcoin, put it in credit form, put it in cash … and then stand up to the ocean and who’s going to win? ”
“Now I’m doing I’m giving you two streams of consciousness in one. I want to talk about my wife. I also want to talk about Harriet Tubman on the twenty-dollar bill… That’s the moment I wanted to use Bitcoin.”
