Decentralized Finance Goes Mainstream with MiamiCoin

Decentralized Finance

Cryptocurrencies aren’t just the future of finance, they’re here – now. Cities are now getting in on the crypto action, most notably Miami and its MiamiCoin. MiamiCoin is the first CityCoin, which is a city-based token. The city of Miami recently voted to approve accessing approximately $5 million worth of cryptocurrency. The coin is a new way of funding government projects and that elected leaders can use to improve the quality of life for city residents. One of the major hurdles for cryptocurrency was building understanding and acceptance for the business and political sphere. Now, cities are getting on board with cryptocurrencies as a way to fund their municipal budgets and change the lives of citizens. The companies helping facilitate this wave of change are moving the needle of progress faster now. Some leaders like WonderFi Technologies Inc. (NEO:WNDR) (OTC:WONDF), Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN), MicroStrategy (NASDAQ:MSTR), Riot Blockchain Inc. (NASDAQ:RIOT), and Mobilum Technologies Inc. (OTC:MBLMF) are developing the tools and blockchain technologies that will underpin future financial infrastructure for governments around the world.
