Mayor Scott Conger also tweeted his concerns over the falling dollar value, increasing inflation and accepting BTC as fix for Inflation.

“Why do we accept inflation? Why don’t we demand more from our federal government? 6.3% in 2 years. 172.8% in my lifetime. Every year our dollar is worth less. There is no rebound. There is only 1 fix for this. Bitcoin.”
