How does the Governor comment on the project? Ron DeSantis stated:

“As the state representative, I endorse bitcoin and want to prove that the state government is crypto-friendly.”

What other states accept cryptocurrency? Earlier, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez put forward a similar offer to regulate cryptocurrency. The project also allows Miami to hold bitcoin as an asset. Suarez now has support outside the county.
