Adams stated in his election campaign that he’d take the city back to the pre-Covid era and transform it into a technological and crypto-related center.

During his campaign he said:

“I promise you, in one year, you’re going to see a different city. We’re going to become the center of life science, the center of cyber security, the center of self-driving cars, drones, the center of bitcoin, we’re going to be the center of all the technology,”

Adams isn’t the first US politician to announce an open-minded stance on crypto, in fact, Miami has been at the forefront of crypto innovation in the US under the leadership of Miami’s Mayor Francis Suarez.

Miami was also the first city in the world to launch its own cryptocurrency, Miami Coin, which has already brought in millions of dollars as revenue, and that income is being used for the development of the city. Mayor Francis was also the first US politician that announced to take 100 percent of his pay in Bitcoin.
