Jackson, Tennessee Will Be The First City In The US To Accept Bitcoin As A Form of Payment
According to reports published on December 19 by local site Jackson News, the city Jackson, Tennessee; is ready to become the first city to accept Bitcoin as a payment method for the city’s employees.
According to the story, municipal mayor Scott Conger has been campaigning for Bitcoin to be introduced as a payment option for public employees. He now has a motion to make it a reality.
Conger is confident that the conversion option will broaden the choice of payment options available to municipal employees and allow the city to pay contractors and businesses in Bitcoin to attract a more extensive range of bids.
“The RFP is open!” the elated mayor said in an address. “The 22nd (December) is when the respondents have to respond to the RFP. So once the 22nd hits, we’ll open the bids, have the committee, and then they’ll review it. They’ll probably make a recommendation to the council in February,” he stated.
A request for proposal (RFP) has been issued to begin accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment method. Third-party platforms will be able to apply to be the city’s cryptocurrency converter due to this.
