How El Salvador’s Youngsters Are Learning Crypto From Scratch

by Aug 17, 2023CryptoNews0 comments

El Salvador is the first country in the world to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender, and some of its citizens are eager to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the cryptocurrency with the younger generation. In the coastal town of El Zonte, also known as Bitcoin Beach, community leaders have been visiting primary schools to teach students how to set up a Bitcoin wallet and send their first transaction. The initiative is part of a broader effort to promote financial inclusion and education in a country where many people lack access to banking services and rely on remittances from abroad. The students, aged between 10 and 12, learned how to use an app called Strike, which allows them to send and receive Bitcoin using the Lightning Network, a technology that enables fast and cheap transactions. They also received a small amount of Bitcoin to practice with and to buy snacks at the school cafeteria. The teachers hope that by exposing the children to Bitcoin at an early age, they will be able to benefit from the opportunities and advantages that the cryptocurrency offers in the future.
