Fiji, a small island nation in the South Pacific, has recently elected a new Prime Minister who is pro-Bitcoin, causing a stir in the cryptocurrency community. Sitiveni Rabuka was elected as the new prime minister at the head of a three-party coalition government on December 24th, ousting the FijiFirst government of Frank Bainimarama after two terms in office.
Lord Fusitu’a, a Tongan noble and former member of the Tongan Parliament, announced the election of Rabuka as Prime Minister on Twitter. He stated that the new prime minister will be responsible for foreign affairs, climate change, environment, public service, information, and public enterprises, and heads a cabinet consisting of 19 ministers and 10 deputy ministers.
Lord Fusitu’a also revealed that he had a phone call with Sitiveni Rabuka to give him recommendations on how to begin BTC mining based on renewable energy and the best path for adoption for Fiji. He expressed his hopes of seeing Fiji become a leader in the cryptocurrency space with the new Prime Minister at the helm.
This news has been welcomed positively by the cryptocurrency community, with many speculating that the Pacific Islands could be the driving force behind the adoption of digital currencies. The Prime Minister has not yet revealed any concrete plans for Bitcoin adoption, but the news has definitely given the cryptocurrency industry a boost of confidence.
Fiji has been a leader in the adoption of renewable energy sources over the past few years, and it looks like it could be an ideal place for Bitcoin mining. With the Prime Minister’s pro-Bitcoin stance, it could be possible for the island nation to become a hub for cryptocurrency activities.
Only time will tell how the Pacific Islands will affect the cryptocurrency industry in the future, but for now, it is clear that the election of the new Prime Minister has given the industry a much-needed boost.
