The Orange Peeling Adventure continues in El Salvador. In an incredible video, 44 central bankers and financial representatives of the world’s emerging markets shouted “Bitcoin!” When posing for a photo in El Salvador, El Salvador:
It turns out that on the third day of the El Salvador Financial Inclusion Conference, central bankers are warming up to Satoshi Nakamoto’s invention and enjoying a bitcoin (BTC) beach trip.
El Jonte or “Bitcoin Beach” is the home of Bitcoin in El Salvador, an iconic destination for bitcoin enthusiasts. This is the birth of the movement that led El Salvador to create legal tender for bitcoin in 2021. Nicholas Barte, co-founder of Gallo Money – the company that made Bitcoin Beach Wallet – told Quentelgraph that bankers visited El Jonte to learn bitcoin from the beach team on Thursday, March 19.
Bert told the Quintelegraph that sentiment towards Bitcoin was “extremely good” and that “nothing is lost on the experience of using lightning to unleash the potential of Bitcoin.” Indicating the global acceptance of Bitcoin, Bart shared:
Central bankers from countries like Paraguay, Ghana and Egypt came to the city to issue satoshi and to connect with locals, including some local celebrities. In fact, the bankers met with Mama Rosa, one of the first sellers to accept Bitcoin in El Jonte in early 2019, to buy a Salvadoran flatbread snack, Pupusa:
One Bitcoiner shared that they “helped a central banker use Bitcoin to buy a coconut from a bankless local in Bitcoin Beach, El Jonte.” The president, Naib Buckel, shared with his smartphone a series of pictures of bankers showing El Chivo Wallet (El Salvador’s BTC payment infrastructure) and flash bills.
It is important to note that for bankers, the conference will cover issues of financial inclusion and financial development for small and medium-sized businesses. Mention of Bitcoin appeared in event publishing officials and pre-conference tweets. However, Alliance for Financial Inclusion, an event partner, did not disclose Bitcoin on their event agenda.
For the Central Bank of Paraguay, whose representative was present, the discussion on Bitcoin was the first in the world to create a BTC legal tender. The Central Bank of Paraguay issued an official statement on May 16, stating:
“The focus of the meeting is not on cryptocurrency or anything like that. Paraguay’s central bank does not want to discuss cryptocurrency in this setting or meeting. ”
Yet frank shots shared on social media; From the El Chivo branding to Bitcoin Beach T-shirts to Lightning Wallet displays and even “Bitcoin!” Screaming, Bitcoin was clearly the focus of attention.
