Francis Suarez – the pro-crypto mayor of Miami – vowed to receive his next paycheck entirely in bitcoin. Thus, he can become the first American politician to be paid in the primary cryptocurrency.
Ever since the beginning of 2021, Francis Suarez has demonstrated quite a favorable approach towards the cryptocurrency industry and, more specifically, bitcoin. Apart from being a holder himself, he often praises the merits of the leading digital asset and stands as one of its most passionate proponents.
In his most recent tweet, Miami’s mayor informed that he will take that support one step further by receiving his next salary in bitcoin. His announcement came as a reply to the crypto proponent and investor – Anthony Pompliano – who asked earlier: “Who is going to be the first American politician to accept their salary in bitcoin?”
I’m going to take my next paycheck 100% in bitcoin…problem solved! @Sarasti can you help? https://t.co/v4YdPZ0tYc
