GOP presidential candidate and current mayor of Miami, Francis Suarez, has expressed his willingness to receive his salary in Bitcoin if elected president. In a recent podcast interview, Suarez confirmed that he already accepts a portion of his mayoral salary in Bitcoin and would continue to do so if he becomes the president. He believes in supporting cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin, as he sees them as a means to ensure freedom and as a hedge against the current monetary system that has become politicized.
Suarez also highlighted the benefits of blockchain technology and fractionalized investments. He explained that tokenization makes it easier for more people to participate in debt and stock investments, potentially closing the wealth gap and allowing individuals to make more money with less risk.
The acceptance of cryptocurrencies by presidential candidates has become a hot topic in the United States. While incumbent Joe Biden and former president Donald Trump have expressed skepticism towards cryptocurrencies, Suarez aligns himself with other candidates who have embraced digital assets. This includes Robert Kennedy Jr., Ron DeSantis, and Vivek Ramaswamy, who have all accepted cryptocurrencies as campaign donations.
Suarez’s opponent, Ron DeSantis, has been vocal in his support for Bitcoin, stating that Americans have the right to use it. However, Suarez believes that DeSantis needs to do more than just oppose Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs). He emphasizes the importance of taking a proactive stance towards cryptocurrencies and fostering innovation in the industry.
As the presidential race unfolds, it is clear that cryptocurrencies have become a significant topic of discussion among candidates. The outcome of the election could have implications for the future of cryptocurrencies and their regulation in the United States.
