Francis Suarez, current mayor of Miami, tweeted on Thursday that he is "exploring" the idea of making Miami, the seventh largest city in the United States, the seat of the country's first municipal crypto-government, apparently endorsing concepts of tokenization and voting networked.
He tagged new city resident Anthony Pompliano, founder and partner of Morgan Creek Digital, for help.
“Miami could be the first US crypto-centered government. Could anyone help Fracis Suarez to try crypto-based concepts for people: voting? Tokenization of parts of the city? Raising capital? ”Said the publication retweeted by the mayor, who replied“ Absolutely exploring this ”.
In a subsequent tweet, Suarez said he wants South Florida "at the forefront of legislation that promotes cryptocurrencies and makes us inclined to innovate." He said he would contact Wyoming's pro-blockchain senator, Caitlin Long, for help on that front.
Suarez has recently pushed for disaffected Silicon Valley and hopeful tech startups, fed up with California taxes and regulations and particularly San Francisco's crime and trash-infested streets, to move to Miami.
Earlier on Thursday, Suarez seemed to endorse bitcoin's growing appeal as an alternative investment with a tweet from Ben Mezrich's book about the Winklevoss twins, “Bitcoin Billionaires”.
