Three dozen mayors to attend eMerge America’s 2022 event to discuss issues at nexus of cryptocurrency, blockchain and government

Washington, DC – On April 19th, more than three dozen mayors will be in Miami, Florida to attend the 2022 eMerge Americas Government (eGOV) Summit. Held in partnership with the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM), the Summit will give mayors an opportunity to learn how innovations in cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies can potentially impact their city, residents, and businesses.

The eGov summit, part of eMerge Americas’ larger tech event, is an annual convening of public and private sector leaders on leveraging disruptive technologies for the benefit of communities.

“We are pleased to have mayors travel to eMerge Americas’ eGov Summit, so they can have a unique forum to learn and raise important questions about blockchain and cryptocurrencies,” said Tom Cochran CEO and Executive Director of USCM. “These technologies have taken off across the U.S., and mayors are eager to learn as much as they can about them and their potential.”

“Our city is a burgeoning tech hub, and that includes crypto companies, who are greatly investing in this community,” said Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, President of USCM. “Here, we are leading the way to be the most cryptocurrency-friendly city in the nation. We’re glad our city could host this event so mayors from across the country can learn more about what blockchain and crypto could mean for their cities.”

eMerge Americas is a venture-backed platform focused on turning Miami into the tech hub of the Americas. The eMerge signature event, launched in 2014, is a global tech conference held annually at the Miami Beach Convention Center, attracting more than 16,000 attendees from 40 countries.
