Eddie Hughes, a member of the UK Conservative Party, said that the state should make it possible to use Bitcoin when paying taxes and utilities. It is reported by The Daily Express.

Eddie Hughes, who represents North Walsall in parliament, calls himself a "crypto-enthusiast with amateur knowledge." According to him, the blockchain technology attracts a lot of attention, and therefore members of parliament "must understand it."

Eddie Hughes also said that he recently met with representatives of the Royal Society for Water Rescue, which accepts donations in cryptocurrencies, after which he came to the idea of ​​making it possible to use Bitcoin when paying municipal taxes and utilities.

It just feels like it gets talked about a lot, wherever you go in the UK, and as MPs we have a duty to understand it.
