An incredible experiment is unfolding before our eyes in El Salvador. Adopting Bitcoin was focused on how we make this experiment a success.
The day before Adopting Bitcoin, I did some more Lightning payments to various merchants around town and had some misadventures with a Chivo Bitcoin ATM.
The day where I find a new version of Chivo that accepts Lightning payments with minimal issue and hike a volcano.
On day 4, I visited the Palacio Nacional, explored the marketplace in Centro Histórico, and went to the mall.
I started the day off with a breakfast of huevos revueltos, with tortillas and frijoles refritos, then ventured out into the city. I decided to head over to Starbucks to get some work done on my laptop and checkout the Bitcoin UX there.
One trend I am beginning to notice is that some businesses who accept Bitcoin treat it as a special edge case. I call this the “designated bitcoiner” approach.
