365 DAYS OF FINANCIAL FREEDOM: THE STORIES OF BITCOIN ADOPTION IN EL SALVADOR
“On June 8, 2021, when El Salvador announced that Bitcoin was to become legal tender in El Salvador, I knew that this was an opportunity to showcase the real value of Bitcoin. What I saw was a community of people curious and open to embracing an honest and inclusive monetary system that could reduce barriers to wealth and build financial freedom.
When I look back one year later, Bitcoin is paving the way for a brighter financial future for the people who believe in Bitcoin for freedom and equal financial access. There’s still work to be done and we know that it begins and ends with education. This will continue to be at the forefront of all that we do in El Salvador and our educational initiatives across the globe.
