The protestors at Capitol Hill just entered a new and exciting phase in their 'social experiment': they are ditching the dollar. And while most items and services in the zone are provided free of charge, some things still need to be paid for. But in the spirit of independence the protestors chose for an interesting alternative to uncle Sam's dollar: a cryptocurrency called JamaiCoin. The coin exists since 2019 and is solely focused on helping charities in Jamaica. Something the protestors can clearly stand behind.
Several (mini) businesses within the zone now accept YAH tokens for payment. A payment is completed within seconds and 1 YAH now equals less than a cent. Protestor Rico sees the use of a cryptocurrency as more than just a novelty: "If we really want to say goodbye to oppression and abuse, we need to say goodbye to the American Dollar. Besides, these tokens have zero inflation. I do not know how long I will stay in CHAZ, but it is good to know that my modest amount will keep its value, even if the dollar is tumbling".
