The purpose of Bitcoin
Decisions regarding our money are made by very few people, most of whom are not elected. We have a system of ever-growing money printing, debt, and credit, as the global reserve currency. This has led to a huge concentration of power and also to an increasing amount of wealth concentration. Bitcoin was invented to decouple money from the state to help eliminate, or at least alleviate, this problem.
Is Bitcoin the solution?
We have an inflationary economic system coupled with technology, which is creating a deflationary system. These forces don’t work well together long-term. They lead to wealth concentration and debasement of currencies, and will eventually stop working altogether. We need a solution! In Bitcoin, we have some potential. It is a decentralized monetary technology that no one owns, operates, or governs.
Bitcoin in El Salvador
Last year, El Salvador was the first country to announce Bitcoin as legal tender and to start to adopt the Bitcoin standard. There are some hurdles ahead...at the top of the list is educating the public. If Bitcoin survives, there is huge potential, and the likelihood of other larger countries following suit is probable.
