What Happens When A Country — El Salvador — Adopts Digital Assets And What It Means For The Future
Netki ensures compliance and prevents fraud for all your digital transactions with their fully automated and scalable KYC, and travel rule compliance solutions. In this 21-minute presentation, Justin Newton speaks on El Salvador’s national adoption of bitcoin and how that has rebranded the country. He also talks about the Chivo wallet, and how Netki assisted them in the process. The Chivo wallet is available for all Salvadorian citizens, and to increase adoption, everyone who downloaded and used the wallet was given $30 in Covid relief. He also touches on how crypto has allowed access to credit for Salvadorians, and before this only 25% of the population had it. This video teaches people how crypto can change the state of an entire country and give those with little access to capital a whole new life. You’ll learn about these things and more about El Salvador’s adoption of crypto throughout this video.
