In a panel discussion that was hosted at Surfin Bitcoin in France, panelists discussed the fact that Bitcoin (BTC) is there for those who need it most. The conference was a Bitcoin-only event that was held on August 26, and tackled tricky topics like “Victims of the Banking System around the world”.
Some of the panelists at the event included Ben Perrin, a Bitcoin YouTuber, Carol, another well known Brazilian Bitcoin YouTuber, and Ernesto Harnandez, a Salvadorian business consultant. During the conference, these panelists shared stories and experiences of how Bitcoin made changes in their respective countries.
Hernandez talked about Bitcoin in El Salvador. Ernesto explained how much criticism Bitcoin received when it was launched in the country in 2021. He believes that most of the resistance occurred because of the big lack of education surrounding Bitcoin in his country.
Despite this, Hernandez stated that it makes him happy to see Salvadorians use Bitcoin on the Chivo app despite the fact that some of the people have never used banking services before.
Carol explained the great positive effects of Bitcoin in Brazil. She referred to the fact that Brazil has run through nine currencies over the last hundred years. Brazil’s current currency has already weakened by 86%, but YouTuber believes that Bitcoin is a way to opt out of this system.
Perrin brought up the Canadian trucker protests as an example of how governments can use banking systems to target certain groups and how Bitcoin could be a solution to this problem
The conference concluded with Hernandez echoing that Bitcoin education is one of the most important factors when it comes to Bitcoin adoption.
