Throwback Thursday: Kentucky Police Chief Asks to be Paid in Bitcoin

Vicco, Ky., is a town that’s known to be one of the smallest of the smallest towns, with a population of just around 330 people. But hey, don’t judge a town by the number of its inhabitants, right? Well in 2013, that was definitely the case here since that did not keep a Police Chief named Tony Vaughn away from the trends of the internet and rising cryptocurrencies.

Considering back then Bitcoin was still gradually growing and beginning to stabilize, it was a story that gave the currency quite a boost and hopes of becoming a payment method one day. Luckily, the city commission approved of this and after standard federal and state reductions in US dollars, Vaughn had received the bitcoins in his personal account.

Fast forward four years and Bitcoin has earned and is still earning a lot of fame and popularity as major investors have accepted the cryptocurrency as a means of payment. Also, let’s not forget the endless amount of altcoins following right behind. One can safely say that we are, as a matter of fact, entering a world of digitization.
