In El Salvador, students as young as 12 are getting acquainted with Bitcoin, thanks to educational programs initiated by the Bitcoin Beach community. In addition, the program has attracted over 25,000 participants and aims to offer practical cryptocurrency knowledge.

Roman Martínez, a leader in the Bitcoin Beach community, discussed the positive effects of introducing Bitcoin, financial literacy, and economic principles at a young age to underprivileged youth. He highlighted the potential benefits. Bitcoin Beach’s after-school sessions focus on equipping students with practical skills for using Bitcoin effectively.

Every Friday, we visit schools to educate students about Bitcoin, money, and the economy. We guide them through the process of setting up a Bitcoin wallet, making their first Bitcoin transaction, and receiving their initial satoshi

The satoshi is the smallest unit of Bitcoin, constituting 100 million satoshis in one BTC. Martínez observed students embracing Bitcoin technology eagerly, challenging the notion that it’s complicated and only for economics enthusiasts.

Additionally, He emphasized that once they’re receptive to learning, they discover it’s remarkably straightforward.

Furthermore, Martínez emphasized that teaching about Bitcoin, money, and banking is crucial as these topics are often neglected in traditional education. Also, he believes that empowering families with financial knowledge can lead to positive change.

“Understanding money is pivotal, as it impacts our daily transactions, work, and savings. By introducing Bitcoin and financial literacy, along with other essential skills, we can enhance their employability,” he explained.

The whitepaper of Bitcoin Beach outlines their goal: leveraging Bitcoin to enhance financial inclusion for those underserved by conventional banking. Situated in El Zonte, near San Salvador, this initiative was among the pioneers in adopting Bitcoin for transactions in El Salvador.

Consequently, with around 70% of El Salvador lacking banking access, President Nayib Bukele emphasizes financial inclusion. His pro-Bitcoin approach prompted the country’s historic move to accept Bitcoin as legal tender in September 2021.

In conclusion, these government-driven educational endeavors intend to equip young Salvadorians for an inclusive, tech-savvy future. This includes opportunities for remote work and global employment.
