Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, who is trying to make his city a bitcoin hub, sees the Chinese government’s crypto crackdown as an opportunity for his city and the United States, he told Bloomberg:
Turning point now. This creates an incredible opportunity for America.

The mayor of Miami is not the only politician who sees China’s crackdown on cryptocurrencies as an opportunity for the United States. “China’s decision to restrict access presents a perfect opportunity for American leadership in cryptocurrency,” McHenry said.
Mayor Suarez said earlier this week that he was actively trying to convince cryptocurrency miners that South Florida offers great opportunities for mining, such as clean energy alternatives such as nuclear, solar and hydropower.
He confirmed that he had spoken with Eric Silagi, chief executive of Florida Power & Light, about attracting crypto businesses to the region. He tweeted in May that Miami City could “mine bitcoin with clean nuclear energy supplied by Florida Power and Light.”
We want to be the world’s crypto mining capital and know that it can be done sustainably and incorporate solar.
