Bitcoin Magazine Podcast


Jan 26, 2021

This week on the Bitcoin Magazine Podcast, ck sits down with Javier Bastardo from Satoshi en Venezuela. This is a wide ranging, real and heart felt conversation about the real trials that the Venezuelan people are subject to because of the totalitarian regime currently in control. Javier tells of his story discovering and living on Bitcoin since 2017 and how Bitcoin gave him both financial stability and community during his persecution living in Venezuela. While Javier is hopeless for Venezuela today he is hopeful personally because of Bitcoin. Javier warns Bitcoiners in the west not to simply use Venezuela as a Bitcoin case study. Venezuelans are suffering at the hands of an evil and parasitic regime. Bitcoin may help but there are many barriers to Bitcoin adoption in Venezuela that prevents the majority of people from leveraging it.
