Eric Adams, the newly elected mayor of New York, wants his first three monthly wages paid in Bitcoin.

 

The former police commissioner will take over the reins from current mayor Bill de Blasio in January.

In his own words, Adams wants to make it clear that New York is “the centre of the cryptocurrency industry”, a response to the message from the mayor of Miami, who also preys on that industry.

Francis Suarez had already announced after his re-election that he would have his first monthly salary paid in Bitcoin.
