Meanwhile, New York Mayor-elect Eric Adams announced plans to take his first three pay cheques in bitcoin, saying that he would make his city the “centre of the cryptocurrency industry.” “In New York we always go big, so I’m going to take my first THREE pay cheques in bitcoin when I become mayor,” Adams posted on his Twitter account. “NYC is going to be the centre of the cryptocurrency industry and other fast-growing, innovative industries! Just wait!” The tweet, which comes two months before the mayor-elect takes office, was a response to Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, who posted a similar message on November 2, saying that his next pay cheque would be 100pc in bitcoin. Suarez, who won re-election earlier this week, has been a cryptocurrency champion. The Miami-born Democrat had previously set his sights on building the city into a hub for cryptocurrency innovation.
