Miami Mayor Open To Explore Bitcoin
Miami in Florida, United States, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. A popular crypto influencer and co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital Assets, Anthony Pompliano, tweeted asking his followers whether they would move to Florida if the mayor allocates 1 percent of the city’s treasury reserve to Bitcoin. Mayor Francis Suarez replied to a tweet saying that he is open to exploring the option.
Pompliano is probably soon to become Miami residents and thus talked about the impact of Bitcoin on Miami city. Pomp asked his users to retweet if they would move to Miami if the mayor allocated 1 percent of the city treasury to Bitcoin. After the mayor replied in affirmation, a flurry of discussion began on Twitter wherein another user, Danny, said that “It’s not unprecedented, Senator-elect from Wyoming, Cynthia Lummis had done that with Wyoming’s treasury way before anyone else even thought of the idea.”
The current numbers indicate that though 1 percent allocation would be small compared to humungous institutional investments in 2020, the Miami governor’s positive response has garnered much attention, which is an indicator of broader crypto adoption. Miami’s 1 percent city reserve allocation would be around $18 million.
Miami Mayor is bullish on Bitcoin and states that it has been a stable investment during the past year, which was extremely unstable. The city is currently looking to explore converting a percentage of its treasury in Bitcoin and accepting cryptocurrency for tax and services payments.
There is an increased affinity for Bitcoin amongst corporate firms, which is evident from large-scale investments in cryptocurrency from MicroStrategy, Square, etc. However, Public officials have also shown great interest in cryptocurrency.
