Miami Announces Plans To Pay City Workers Salaries In Bitcoin

Miami will push a bitcoin payout plan for its employees, Mayor Francis Suarez told Bloomberg on Tuesday, expanding its ambition to make Florida a major digital asset hub.
“In October, we are going to submit a request for proposal to allow our employees to receive payment in bitcoins, to allow our residents to pay fees in bitcoins and even taxes, potentially in bitcoins, if the county allows it,” Suarez said in an interview.
The official offer came after city commissioners backed his decision in February to instruct the city manager to hire a supplier that would offer employees the option to receive a percentage of their salary in bitcoin.
