It appears like politicians across the US are starting to embrace Bitcoin and are leading the charge toward mass adoption. Last week, Miami, Florida Mayor Francis Suarez announced that he will accept his next salary in bitcoins. In a tweet, he tagged Miami Director of Innovation and Technology Mike Sarasti to enable him to do so.

His initiative garnered much attention among the crypto community. Many lauded the move, in which leaders are seemingly walking the talk regarding their aim to popularize cryptocurrencies. 

Likewise, Jackson, Tennessee Mayor Scott Conger announced that he would do the same.

Moreover, Mayor Suarez’ contemporary in Tampa, Florida Jane Castor said that she will also do the same, albeit with apologies “for coming in late to the conversation”.

Meanwhile, Eric Adams recently won the election for the Mayor of New York City. Adams is another Bitcoin supporter who said he will take his next three paychecks in bitcoins.

Furthermore, he said that he will make New York City the center of the cryptocurrency industry.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin price is at $60,839.03, according to CoinGecko.
