The city of Philadelphia rolls out its own blockchain initiative

Mark Wheeler, Chief Innovation Officer of the City of Philadelphia, announced a Monday initiative to bring blockchain technology into city government. To see how blockchain technology can be used within municipal government, the project invited those working in smart contracts and blockchain to reach out to project staff. Wheeler tweeted that he was inspired to do so by Miami’s blockchain forward efforts. Mayor Francis Suarez, who has promoted city-specific crypto tokens as a possible replacement for taxes, has decided to get his next paycheck in Bitcoin.

Satoshi white papers gets noticed on another city’s website. @Sarasti & @CityofMiami deserve props for being the first to get there. #blockchain

Website for the city includes background information about crypto, including Satoshi Nakamoto’s bitcoin whitepaper, Vatalik Yeterin’s Ethereum whitepaper, and a 21-minute introduction video by Andreessen Horowtiz. There is also a link to Web3 foundation website. The exploratory phase of this gambit is not expected to last for a fixed time. Wheeler stated, “I’m trying get a very clear sense of the use cases and why there could possibly be a value proposition. That’s what this website is all about.” In an interview with StateScoop, Wheeler stated that “We’re open to talking.”

The latest municipality to join the crypto sphere is the city of brotherly affection. Monday’s launch follows Eric Adam, the newly elected NYC mayor, whose announcement said that he hopes crypto literacy is taught in public schools. Suarez’s lead is being followed by Tampa Mayor Jane Castor who plans to receive her next paycheck in Bitcoin. Jackson, TN also announced that it would be investigating the adoption of crypto-payments back in April.
