Before taking office as mayor of the city in 2017, Suarez was a lawyer and also the founder of a real estate firm. In a post on Twitter, Suarez writes that he learned about the first cryptocurrency from people like Tyler Winklevoss and Anthony Pompliano. He also revealed that he is currently reading the book "Bitcoin Billionaires", written by Tyler Winklevoss.
In response to this statement, Tyler Winklevoss promised to give Suarez a signed copy of his work. Pompliano also responded to the message, calling Miami "the future city of Bitcoin." Suarez noted that he is indeed considering making Miami the first crypto-friendly American city.
Recall that back in early 2019, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel expressed confidence that the adoption of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is inevitable due to the increasing instability of the financial and political systems of the world.
