The new mayor of New York will be paid at Bitcoin

In the United States, there is a huge competition among mayors for innovation and commitment to the values of Digital Economy 2.0. Following the Mayor of Miami Francis Suarez, a new mayor from New York, Eric Adams, who will take office in January 2022, also announced his readiness to be paid in cryptocurrency.

In his tweet, he wrote, “In New York we always go big, so I’m going to take my first three pay checks in Bitcoin when I become mayor. New York City will become the center of the cryptocurrency industry and other fast-growing and innovative industries! Just wait!”

Earlier in an interview with Bloomberg, Adams stated that he would like to enter the «friendly competition» with Suarez and do in New York something similar he did in Miami. As well as to understand the obstacles to mass adoption cryptocurrency and, in particular, Bitcoin in New York.

Recall that in August, the Miami municipality, with the direct support of Suarez, within the framework of the CityCoins project, created the MiamiCoin cryptocurrency. It will be used to finance infrastructure and social projects, various urban activities, and will add $50-70 million to the city’s treasury.
