Miami Mayor To Take His Entire Salary In Bitcoin


  • The mayor of Miami will be taking his entire salary in bitcoin.
  • “I feel very comfortable getting my entire salary in bitcoin,” he said in an interview.
  • Government spending and “manipulated central bank currency systems” drove him to make the bold move.

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez will be taking his entire salary in bitcoin, he said in an interview with FOX Business. Suarez explained that he wants to provide the option for city employees to receive their salaries in BTC, partly or in full, but it won’t be imposed on anyone.

“Our CIO was the first employee to take a percentage of his salary in bitcoin and I’m going to be employee number two,” the mayor said. “I’m taking 100% of my salary in bitcoin.”

Suarez wants to level up the field and allow all city employees to be paid in bitcoin, but “it will be completely optional,” he assured. “We want our employees to have that option but it’s certainly not going to be something that we’re going to force on them.”
