El Salvador recently rolled out a nationwide Bitcoin education program.
Both internal and international tourism levels skyrocketed.
Nayib Bukele takes Bitcoin’s price slump as a buying opportunity.
El Salvador, the small Latin American nation that became the first country to accept Bitcoin (BTC) as legal tender, has outlined plans for the New Year of Black Rabbit, with the next Bitcoin Beach event at El Zonte coming on 30th, January 2023.
The Bitcoin event was announced by Bitcoin maximalist Stacy Herbert and will kick off at 7 PM local time. According to Herbert’s warm invitation, there’s a lot to look forward to:
“Come join us in Bitcoin Beach for surfing, sushi, margaritas and Cuban Jazz.. and lots of Bitcoin conversation”.
Max Keiser and the Volcano Bonds
Max Keiser is the BTC Evangelist who wrote several books about his Bitcoin journey, described as “relentless optimism in the age of Bitcoin.” Interestingly, the filmmaker, broadcaster, and journalist received El Salvadoran citizenship and became one of the top stars of the Bitcoin Beach in El Zonte. Keiser and his wife Stacy Herbert started the Orange Pill Party, spreading awareness about Bitcoin and blockchain tech’s overall benefits for society.
The crypto couple has been involved in Bitcoin Lightning education events around El Salvador, sponsored by Pro-Bitcoin President Nayib Bukele. The Bitcoin-loving Bukele drew up plans for a Golden Bitcoin City with a volcano as the centerpiece. Soon after, Keiser became obsessed with the idea, as El Salvador could be the first crypto hub in the world powered by Bitcoin. Ultimately, the Volcano bonds backed by BTC would bring many investors to El Salvador and increase adoption.
El Salvador Still Getting Used to BTC
Indeed, Bitcoin Lightning technology enables the unbanked people of El Salvador to pay their bills without taking a lengthy bus journey. At the same time, international tourism levels skyrocketed due to the Bitcoin Beach and the country’s positive stance on crypto. Unfavored by the mass media, Mr. Bukele agrees with Max Keiser’s definition of Bitcoin’s power:
“Bitcoin is the most extreme art possible, immune to any censorship.” However, recent research reveals that the Chivo app released by Nayib Bukele’s government didn’t stick to the public or businesses. Most users rushed to sign up for the mobile app to obtain the $30 bonus, equal to three working days for an average El Salvadorean.
As the president continues his audacious crackdown on gangs, fosters Bitcoin maximalism, and focuses on international tourism, Stacy Herbert describes El Salvador’s journey as “The greatest rebrand in history.”
