With El Salvador’s upcoming Bitcoin adoption in September, and with its recent announcement of wallet development and planned airdropping, it appears that Americans want the same crypto initiatives from the U.S. government.
Recently, the hashtag ”#PayMeInBitcoin” became a trending topic in U.S., reflecting American’s growing interest in increased Bitcoin push from the government.
It is also interesting to note that this clamor is not only happening in U.S. but also in other parts of the world where citizens are urging their governments to embrace Bitcoin just like what El Salvador did.
Pro crypto U.S.
But even before the “#PayMeInBitcoin” hashtag became a trending topic, various states in the U.S have been working to prepare themselves for wide-scale cryptocurrency adoption.
Arizona, for its part, has been reported to have bills in place which aim to officially recognize various cryptocurrencies as real currency. The state also aims to be the first in the U.S. to accept cryptos as tax bill payments.
Other states which include Texas, Montana, Kansan, Tennessee, and New Hampshire are also preparing for crypto-related initiatives, which would soon make them a hub for the fast-growing crypto mining businesses.
Crypto scene in other countries
The Canada Elite Basketball League (CEBL) has announced that it will provide Bitcoin payments for willing basketball players, and crypto exchange platform BuyBit will assist players in converting their Canadian dollar salaries into Bitcoin.
Countries like Estonia, Switzerland, New Zealand, and Japan are also expected to roll out Bitcoin salaries for their employees. Japan is already in the early stages of this plan as some Japanese companies have already started to provide crypto payments for their workers.
