Speaking publically, Suarez thanked the city of Miami commissioners for supporting his resolution to procure a vendor to be able to offer employees the option to receive a portion of their salaries in Bitcoin.
He added this allows our residents to pay for fees in Bitcoin and would also allow the city manager to cooperate with the county to allow taxes to be paid in Bitcoin. He continued;
“The city of Miami supports efforts to make Bitcoin an acceptable currency for us to potentially invest in in the future. It is wonderful to be a very crypto forward city in Miami,”
The massive endorsement was noted and retweeted by a number of industry experts including Anthony Pompliano;
WOW! Miami Mayor @FrancisSuarez just got Miami into Bitcoin.
– Employees paid in BTC
– Residents pay fees in BTC
– Taxes in BTC
– City Treasury in BTC
Absolutely unreal. The first Bitcoin municipal in the United States
