According to Miami-Dade County Commissioner Danielle Cohen Higgins, Bitcoin will travel “to the moon!” She wants Miami-Dade County to serve as a launchpad.
The commissioner of Miami-Dade County urged Bitcoin 2021 participants to relocate to the area, luring them with pro-crypto government measures such as the prospective establishment of a Bitcoin industry campus.
“Imagine a hub, a campus dedicated to Bitcoin,” said commissioner Danielle Cohen Higgins said. “A Bitcoin valley right here.”
“I’m here to tell you you are already home. We are a community that came from nothing and started something. We support Bitcoin, we support cryptocurrencies, we support your industry!”
She then lavished compliments on her audience in order to entice them. “You understand that Bitcoin has game-changing financial implications as well as game-changing social implications!” She yelled.
Higgins’ idea of establishing a Bitcoin hub in Miami may contradict crypto’s dedication to decentralisation. However, some businesses have already begun to place bets on Miami: Blockchain.com, a crypto startup based in New York, said on Thursday that it will relocate its 300-person workforce to Miami.
She also mentioned that the NBA team, the Miami Heat, is now sponsored by cryptocurrency exchange FTX, which was created in 2019 by Sam Bankman-Fried and Gary Wang. Following a 19-year agreement for $135 million for FTX, the Heat’s stadium was recently renamed the “FTX Arena.”
A few other cities in the country are attempting to replicate Miami’s success. Wyoming enticed Cardano, Ripple, and Kraken with crypto-friendly efforts; Kraken is establishing a crypto bank in the state. Higgins, on the other hand, claims that her county’s budget is larger than that of ten states, including Wyoming.
“You understand when it comes to Bitcoin—always buy the dip!” she told her crowd. “And one more thing: to the moon, everyone!”
