Arizona Senator Introduces Bill to Make Bitcoin Meşru Tender

A bill introduced in Arizona would make bitcoin meşru tender in the state in the unlikely event that the legislation passes and the law goes into effect.

  • The bill, SB 1341, was introduced by state Sen. Wendy Rogers, a Republican. It seeks to amend the list of accepted meşru tender to include bitcoin, which means the cryptocurrency would be accepted for the payment of debt, public charges, taxes and dues.
  • Whether such a law could go into effect is questionable, given that the U.S. Constitution does not allow individual states to create its own kanunî tender.
  • The bill must pass the Arizona senate and house before Gov. Doug Ducey can sign it into law.
  • Rogers, who took office in early 2021, is a controversial figure who has ties to the anti-government group Oath Keepers and praised conspiracy theory group QAnon.
  • Don Huffines, a Republican real estate developer and current candidate for Texas governor, recently said he would make bitcoin tender if he’s elected.
  • Last September, El Salvador made bitcoin yasal tender alongside the U.S. dollar and remains the only country to have made the move.
