Jackson City, the eighth-biggest city in the US state of Tennessee, intends to permit its residents to pay property tax in Bitcoin (BTC), according to Mayor Scott Conger.
Mayor Conger announced his ambition on Twitter by stating that:
“Our blockchain task force is looking into how the CityofJacksonTN can accept property tax payments in Bitcoin and allow our employees to DCA in Bitcoin.”
DCA is an investment strategy in which an investor divides up the total amount to be invested across periodic purchases of a target asset to reduce the impact of volatility on the overall purchase.
