@NunyaBidness More of this!
We don’t need all the states to do this, just enough that it thwarts those that do want passports to back TF off.
@verretor @Full_node @NunyaBidness I'm looking into applying for permanent residency status in Mexico. The requirements are financial, presently being able to demonstrate that you have 20,000 days equivalent of the minimum wage in Mexico via bank statements going back 12 months (at present that's about $120k USD). There is no "physical presence" test required to maintain the residency; under current Mexican law, once you have it, you have it. You can apply without even visiting the country.
@verretor @Full_node @NunyaBidness Not necessarily! In my case I can show them brokerage and life insurance statements to meet the minimum. My actual bank statements would never work because I keep all of $30 in the legacy banking system (I stay 100% invested all the time). If needed, I could show statements from BTC custodian accounts I have (doubt I could prove the value of my self-custody cold hodl, lol).
