    ABP309 - Bitcoin Adoption in Argentina: A look at Bottom-up & Top-down

    ABP309 - Bitcoin Adoption in Argentina: A look at Bottom-up & Top-down

    This week we have Bitcoiners from Argentina on the pod - Argentina has been wrestling with chronic inflation of their local currency the Argentinian Peso for decades and recently made headlines when a libertarian outsider called Javier Milei who is also said to be bitcoin-friendly won the Presidential primaries by surprise. Part of Milei’s platform was a very hostile stance against central banks and not surprisingly this has made Bitcoiners pay attention and get excited about this candidate. In this episode we learn from Argentinian Bitcoiners Ariel and Adam how much is true of these rumours - is maybe a second bitcoin president in the making? And what else is going on around Bitcoin in Argentina.

Top notch Bitcoiner education

Galoy mission is clear: Hyperbitcoinization. Research and marketing of this seemingly complex task is made crystal clear through the episodes here. Great work from the team that sparked Bitcoin as legal tender in El Salvador! Looking forward to listening to the whole season!
