Our main discussion: Is Miami about to put 1% of its treasury into bitcoin?

Since December 2020 there has been a lot of conversation about whether Miami could become the next Silicon Valley, or at least recruit a big swath of entrepreneurial talent to set up shop.

In this episode, NLW looks at how that discussion moved into the crypto realm and led to Mayor Suarez’s recent discussions about moving Miami’s treasury into bitcoin. He argues that the story is about the larger shifts in how cities and geographic regions compete for supremacy in the social media, remote work era.
