The mayor of Reno appears to be a LINK Marine

It would seem that Mayor Hillary Schieve of Reno, Nevada is a supporter of Chainlink’s blockchain oracle project.

As more jurisdictions explore the potential utility of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency, one American mayor suggested that she backs Chainlink — the most widely used oracle network for powering connected smart contracts. 

When Miami Mayor Francis Suarez announced that his municipality’s website would host Satoshi Nakamoto’s Bitcoin (BTC) white paper, Mayor Hillary Schieve of Reno, Nevada asked her colleague when he would become a LINK Marine — a popular term to describe supporters of Chainlink’s oracle network.

“The City of Miami believes in Bitcoin,” Suarez said, adding that he’s “working day and night to turn Miami into a hub for crypto innovation.”

Part of Schieve’s response includes: “When are you going to become a LINK marine?”

Chainlink’s LINK asset has emerged as an influential altcoin in recent months. Ranked seventh by total market capitalization, LINK is positioning itself as a major catalyst for digital-asset innovation and adoption.

Schieve, who isn’t affiliated with any political party, has held the post of Reno mayor since 2014. She also appears to be a long-term supporter of cryptocurrency, going as far as making plans to accept crypto donations during her 2018 reelection campaign:

Her Twitter bio includes: “Passionate about tech, government, and anything entrepreneurial.”

Miami Mayor Suarez has become one of the most vocal proponents of digital assets. As Cointelegraph reported last month, Suarez has been learning more about Bitcoin through influential figures like Tyler Winklevoss and Anthony Pompliano. He called Bitcoin a “stable investment during an incredibly unstable year.”
