Miami’s City Council votes for bitcoin proposals

Miami’s City Council has seconded Mayor Francis Suarez‘s plan to see BTC intertwined with the fabric of the city.

The Council voted to support the roll out of cryptocurrencies in the city, according to an official tweet by the mayor, which said: “I want to thank the city of Miami commissioners for supporting my resolution, which directs a city manager after analysis to procure a vendor to be able to offer our employees to get a percentage of their salary in bitcoin; allows our residents to pay for fees in bitcoin.”

It is game on when it comes to cryptocurrencies and bitcoin in Miami. Suarez laid an ambitious plan to shape the city as a bitcoin hub and encourage businesses and residents to pay in bitcoin.

Through a new resolution voted by the Council, bitcoin could now become an acceptable investment for municipal funds. Suarez welcomed the news saying that he was excited to be the mayor of a “crypto-forward city,” and that support was strong with 4-1 votes in favor.

With the change of presidency in the White House, crypto is in for a much smoother ride than under former-President Donald Trump who was a staunch crypto denier. So, can Miami steer towards a crypto future? According to Commissioner Manolo Reyes, it's a possibility but one that needs careful scrutiny.

Cryptocurrencies are quite popular around the world, with PayPal and Tesla vowing their own support. Now, with more cities embracing cryptocurrencies, casino sites such as Bitcasino, 1xBit and BitStarz all have a shot at attracting even bigger audiences.

The websites already offer massive bonuses you can claim even today and enjoy wager-free experiences in some!
