“The next president of the United States has to be a pro-bitcoin candidate,” Suarez asserted.
Suarez joked that one day he might be that presidential candidate.
“I thought, ‘How can I go bigger, and I thought I could make an announcement that I’m running for….nah, not this year,” Suarez explained.
Nonetheless, Suarez stated that he wanted to articulate a “vision for the country” in relation to cryptocurrency, dubbed “Vision for Bitcoin America 2024.” Suarez advocated for the integration of bitcoin into “every part of our society”, including the purchase of everyday goods with the cryptocurrency, in addition to pushing for the election of pro-Bitcoin leaders who can help establish a positive regulatory environment,
Suarez also talks about a collaborative effort to “unleash the macro power of bitcoin,” which he describes as leveraging the blockchain to break poverty cycles by decoupling it from certain federal monetary policies.
“Bitcoin has the power to democratize and to create wealth for the unbanked and the poor in our community who are getting decimated by inflation and government spending that has run rampant,” said Suarez.
Suarez made headlines early last year when he stated his intention to invest some of Miami’s reserves in bitcoin. Since then, Miami’s government has tried to make the city a hub for bitcoin and crypto businesses, and the state’s governor, Ron DeSantis, has said he’s on board with that idea.
