During a CNN interview that took place on Nov. 7, New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams said that crypto and blockchain should be taught at schools in the “Big Apple”:

And that’s what we must do — open our schools to teach the technology and teach this new way of thinking.

The 61-year-old politician made a case for increasing cryptocurrency awareness among young people.  

The newly elected mayor also said that he was going to consider encouraging merchants to accept Bitcoin.

Adams, however, added that the city won’t be in a rush to act on such an initiative:

We are going to look at it, and we are going to tread carefully. We are going to get it right.    

As reported by U.Today, the mayor-elect made waves on Twitter earlier this week by announcing that he would receive his first three paychecks in Bitcoin.
