She will be the fourth mayor nationwide to get paid in Bitcoin.

The trend was started by cryptocurrency-friendly Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, who tweeted on Tuesday that he would take his next salary entirely in the flagship cryptocurrency.

He was then joined by New York Mayor-elect Eric Adams, who proclaimed that he would take his first three paychecks in Bitcoin.  

Previously, Adams said that he wanted to make the "Big Apple" a Bitcoin hub.

Scott Conger, the head of Jackson, Tennessee, became the third major to pledge his allegiance to the cryptocurrency community with a similar announcement.
