An Essay From El Salvador: A Moment In Time For Bitcoin And A Country


This is the third installment in Okcoin’s “I am Satoshi” series, profiles of Salvadorans during the transition to bitcoin as legal tender. Read the first about Elina Marchenko’s visit with Enrique Barrios of Bitcoin Smiles.

As I read that email from a friend, it struck me how much of a contrast it was from the typical emails I receive about news stories in El Salvador. There was no shock at the rise in violence, no concern for our family or our organization. There was simply amazement that El Salvador was the first country in the world to adopt bitcoin as legal tender.
