Crypto Adoption Will Be ‘exponential’ Says Belgian MP Who Receives An Entire Salary In Bitcoin

Christopher De Beukelaer, a member of the Brussels Parliament, says he will receive the entire salary in bitcoin this year. The technology is expected to disrupt all industries, and crypto adoption will be “exponential.”
Belgian MP Says He Will Receive Entire Salary in Bitcoin – “We Can No Longer Ignore This New World”
In a blog post on his personal website, Christopher De Beukelaer, a member of the Brussels Parliament, said that he will receive his salary in bitcoins in 2022.

“With the blockchain, we are at the dawn of a revolution of the same order as the internet 30 years ago,” he said. He expects all sectors to be disrupted, adding that in other countries, “large institutions are beginning to invest massively in crypto assets in order not to miss the opportunity.”
He noted that politicians have an important role to play in educating the population about these societal changes that are coming.

It is no longer possible to remain ignorant of this new world, and it’s like clinging to a carriage or a candle while cars and light bulbs appear. Adoption is going to be exponential.

To generate interest around bitcoin and the crypto industry, the lawmaker has “decided to convert his entire salary for the whole of 2022 into bitcoin,” the post details.

The lawmaker opined:
I am the first in Europe, but not globally, to want to shine the spotlight on cryptocurrencies with such an approach.

He referenced the mayor of New York City, Eric Adams, who is receiving his first three paychecks in cryptocurrency. His first paycheck was recently converted into bitcoin (BTC) and ether (ETH) via Coinbase. Mayor Adams said he converted his paycheck into bitcoin to send a message that New York City is open to technology.

“I think it’s not too late for Brussels and Belgium to be at the forefront of the cryptocurrency industry. We already have some great companies in the field … but it’s time to position ourselves clearly and create a real ecosystem,” De Beukelaer concluded.
