Miami Mayor Francis Suarez recently spoke about bitcoin at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and also discussed its potential as a global currency, Cointelegraph reports. In addition, he said that Bitcoin “creates trust, which is the foundation on which the monetary system should be built”. Suarez is known to pay part of his salary in bitcoin, which he uses most of the time.
Bitcoin is highly popular among current investments and is an option that many people are willing to try. Not only individual investors but also many famous merchants or brands, etc. are starting to accept payments using cryptocurrency. Some countries or regions even accept the use of cryptocurrency to purchase house cruises or tourist accommodations. This also reflects that cryptocurrency is gradually integrating into our daily life.
However, the cryptocurrency market is currently going through a bear market phase, with many tokens in a downward spiral. At the time of writing the price of Bitcoin is listed at $31,225.30 on the international exchange Gate.io. Not long ago Bitcoin fell below $30,000 with a low of $28,805.07. The lower the price of Bitcoin, the more bullish investors will be. Will there be any signs of a price turnaround while everyone is expecting it?

Dubai International Mall Accepts Bitcoin Payments
Dubai being an international tourist country and an affluent one is not the first project to accept cryptocurrency payments. This time, Majid Al Futtaim, one of the most prestigious companies in the Middle East, has accepted cryptocurrency payments in its shopping centers and other properties that have millions of customers every year.
With such support, cryptocurrencies are also one step closer to people’s daily lives. This also means that the chances of cryptocurrencies being recognized and accepted are also on the rise. A rebound in bitcoin prices may be just around the corner.
