A group of individuals based in Argentina have taken it upon themselves to liberate with and educate the population of their country on Bitcoin, with the hopes of aiding sustainable economic growth via the possibilities of Bitcoin and the ensuing fintech sector.

The group has managed to create a fun, unique way of spreading the message, traveling in a veritable “Bitmobile”. Pictured below is La Bitcoineta, their stylized Bitcoin education van that has taken them across the cities and towns of Argentina. The name is a play on the words “Bitcoin” and “furgoneta“, the latter the Spanish word for van.

They described their objective to Bitcoin News as an ”initiative to generate bridges between those who are developing the technologies that will change the world and the different productive, social, cultural, and economic ecosystems”.

Th guys have really done. I rwad the article and it's good the Argentina media have also tried to help boost the publicity. If we need people to adopt the use of Bitcoin and blockchain then we need to educate them amd so that's a great initiative.

I like these initiatives, especially with how people here mostly take for granted that adoption will grow out itself by not doing anything to stimulate it. That's exactly why we have so many get rich quick assholes here.

I can happily say that I have done my best to make Bitcoin function as a currency within the circle I'm frequently doing business with. They don't necessarily hold all their coins, but they acknowledge the power of a currency that can't be blocked or censored by any shitty bank or government. That's 100 times better than having them use it as speculative shittool. Financial freedom is worth way more than lousy fiat profits, not everyone realizes that yet.

Yeah! I'm a huge fan (yes, fan, I'll admit) of these type of initiatives. We give so much space in the media to high-level conferences and corporate conventions. We see big suits talking tech and disruptions.

But it's when people are on the ground, telling people about this new form of money, with no gain and no fame, that I really sit up and read. From geocache Bitcoin treasure hunts in Africa to enthusiasts sharing their efforts at small home mining rigs, to regular coffee meetups (paid with Bitcoin of course!), devs who still devote their lives to activism and Bitcoin... these guys do a hell of a lot more for adoption than any "revolutionary platform" will.

And oh, guys like you, of course Wink Keep Bitcoining!
