Miami Mayor Francis Suarez may try to turn his city into a home for cryptocurrency innovation.
Crypto money statement attracting attention from the Mayor of Miami
Suarez said today on Twitter that he has endorsed Miami, the seventh largest city in the USA, to tokenize the country’s first crypto-centric municipal government, to voting on the chain. The president tagged new city resident Anthony Pompliano, founder of Morgan Creek Digital, to seek help from Twitter celebrities.

In a subsequent tweet, Suarez said he wanted South Florida as “the pioneer of laws that support cryptocurrency and drive us to innovation.” It is quite possible for Wyoming’s blockchain veteran Caitlin Long to be helped in this area.
President wants to attract initiatives in Silicon Valley
Suarez has been pushing hopeful tech startups, dissatisfied with Silicon Valley lately, to leave California’s taxes and regulations, and especially San Francisco’s crime-filled streets, to move to Miami. The cryptocurrency industry may be the latest strategy in this offering.
Earlier on Thursday, Suarez posted a tweet in which Ben Mezrich referred to the book “Winklevoss Twins Bitcoin Billionaires”, saying he sees the growing appeal of Bitcoin as an alternative investment.
