Are you in favour of BTC education programs?
The decimation of Silicon Valley Bank, Silvergate Bank and Signature Bank is a poignant reminder that even established institutions will meet their downfall due to costly mistakes. No one is invincible.
Educating our youth about Bitcoin may be a radical move and is probably frowned upon by the mainstream educational authorities, especially since almost all countries in the world are developing Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) in some way or another. Nonetheless, Mi Primer Bitcoin, a BTC education advocacy, has launched an English diploma program related to Bitcoin in El Salvador. It is projected to reach out to more than 10,000 students - quite an impressive feat.
“Not your keys, not your coins” involves a learning curve that people inducted into the world of Bitcoin must conquer. It is composed of a mindset shift since you must be ready to accept full responsibility of your Bitcoin as no one will come to your rescue when you succumb to hacks and scams. Still, the idea of having full autonomy of your assets is intoxicating. Bitcoin may be the only reliable non-custodial way of managing your finances that is available currently.
Hence, if a non-profit organisation were to launch Bitcoin educational programs that are similar to Mi Primer Bitcoin’s offerings in your country, would you support or oppose it? Or remain non-committal until this organisation has formulated a track record?
