Mayor Suarez’s Bitcoin Enthusiasm

Suarez has proven himself to be one of the most Bitcoin-friendly politicians in the world. He stated that he wants Bitcoin to become a staple of his city and has promoted plans that see city workers paid in the digital currency. He also expressed interest in permitting to utilize Bitcoin to pay city taxes and other utilities.


One of the big reasons that he is pro-bitcoin is because he believes that inflation in the US is now a serious issue. After witnessing his fellow politicians pass a $1.9 trillion spending bill last year to combat the growing coronavirus pandemic, he is certain that bitcoin can relieve some of the effects and prove more effective down the road.

Miami is powered by nuclear energy, which is an inexpensive substitute to coal and standard fossil fuels. He said that he works with the Florida Power & Light Company as a means of bringing prices down for the natural gas to potentially attract miners to move to the area.

“The fact that we have nuclear power means that it is very inexpensive power… We understand how important this is… Miners want to get to a certain kilowatt price per hour, and so we are working with them on that.”

“We were one of the first cities in the world to have a data center, and a mining hub is very similar to a data center… Building a mining facility is similar with building a data center. It is not something that happens overnight.”
