- Governor of Florida will implement state fees in cryptocurrency
- So far, the service will only be available to businesses
- Also in the project for 2022 there are blockchain innovations for medicine
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has shared plans for 2022 year. There will be a number of cryptocurrency innovations. In particular, the official suggested that local enterprises pay state duties in bitcoins. This program is already included in the city budget. Also, the authorities will launch pilot projects to test the blockchain in the registration of auto and medical care.
This is another step in Florida’s efforts to increase the number of bitcoin investors. This year, the region has attracted new entrepreneurs and companies in this area. For example, in Miami, the basketball stadium was renamed FTX Arena, since the famous FTX exchange signed a contract with it.
The Florida governor has many associates. Among them is the famous crypto enthusiast, Mayor of Miami Francis Suarez. At the beginning of the year, he suggested that the city integrate bitcoin into the city’s infrastructure. This will allow residents to pay taxes and city fees in cryptocurrency. The city also plans to stake BTC, launch its own Miami Coin tokens and distribute Airdrop to local residents.
The state of Wyoming is also introducing blockchain: a special technology will help them more easily control spending from the state budget. And Ohio in 2018 already practiced taxes in digital currencies. But a year later, the program was canceled due to criticism of some officials – they believed that it “did not meet the standards.”
