Miami as A Crypto City: The Next Hub in The Crypto World

by | Jul 30, 2022

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez recently announced his intention to make the city a hub for cryptocurrency and blockchain technology by hosting several crypto conferences (including Bitcoin) and unveiling a partnership between CityCoins. This non-profit organization enables individuals to invest in a municipality’s cryptocurrency and hold it for trading.

In doing so, Suarez joins a growing list of municipal leaders and city officials who see the benefits of investing in these emerging technologies.

As crypto and blockchain technology continues to grow and evolve, it’s becoming clear that Miami is positioning itself to become a major player in the space. Gone are the days when the San Francisco Bay Area was the only game in town regarding tech innovation and now you can even buy Miami real estate with Cryptocurrency.

With its strong ties to Latin America and its burgeoning startup scene, Miami-Dade County is well on its way to becoming a major destination for those looking to get involved in the crypto world.

Miami crypto startups like the Security Token Group are already helping to drive this change by providing a much-needed bridge between the traditional financial world and the new world of digital assets.

How Crypto Changed South Florida and Transformed It Into A Blockchain & Bitcoin Hub

Miami As A Crypto City: The Next Hub In The Crypto World

In just a few years, South Florida has gone from being a relatively unknown region in the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain to becoming one of the most active and vibrant hubs for these industries.

This transformation is mainly due to the efforts of a few key individuals and organizations who saw these technologies’ potential and took it upon themselves to make Miami a more crypto-friendly city.

Last August 2021, MiamiCoin, a municipal digital currency, was launched to fund local projects and help boost the city’s economy. Mayor Suarez also stated that he receives his paycheck in Bitcoin, one of the first major public figures to do so.

Soon, local governments from other cities have also taken an interest. Jackson, Tennessee city employees, also followed suit by planning to receive their paychecks as cryptocurrency.

The city government announced in February 2022 that the local government had cashed out MiamiCoin for the first time, putting $5.25 million into city coffers. 

There are Bitcoin ATMs scattered in the area, with four working ATMs on Miami Beach alone.

The crypto culture in the Magic City is also evident in the number of local businesses that accept Bitcoin as payment, including restaurants, hotels, and even a real estate company. For instance, a club in Downtown Miami is known as one of the first to accept Bitcoin as payment for services and products.

With Miami officials welcoming crypto with open arms and a growing number of businesses and entrepreneurs getting involved in the space, the real estate industry is also starting to take notice.

Young professionals have been using cryptocurrency to buy properties and luxury condos in Miami, with some even going so far as to purchase several properties with Bitcoin.

In January 2022, the Marquis Residences in Downtown Miami managed to sell its first condo. The buyer used the Ethereum cryptocurrency to complete the $6.94 million purchase – the year’s first crypto real estate deal.

There are also crypto-backed loans that have been popping up in Miami, which allow buyers to put down a digital currency as collateral for a cash loan.

This is all part of a more significant trend of people using cryptocurrency to buy property in Miami, with the city becoming an increasingly popular destination for those looking to invest in the space.

“I have a lot of buyers who are coming in from out of state and even out of the country who want to purchase property here with cryptocurrency,” said Josh Stein, founder of the Miami-based real estate firm Josh Stein Realtor.

“This is a new type of buyer we’re seeing in the market, and I think it’s only going to grow in the coming years.”

As more people become interested in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, Miami is poised to become one of the leading hubs for these industries. With a strong community of entrepreneurs and businesses already established in the city, Miami is well on its way to becoming a major player in cryptocurrency and blockchain.
