49 thoughts on “3 Ways Bitcoin Is Promoting Freedom in Latin America”

  1. For these very reasons I've been very active in Bitcoin for the last few years, and make almost all my income in Bitcoin. Recently, though, I've gotten way more into Dash, which builds on Bitcoin's basic technology while fixing a few of its issues, such as privacy.

  2. Bitcoin notarization would not solve government requirements. You can't move the land through the blockchain if the government can just reverse the transaction. You can only move value captured in the "token" itself.

  3. Bitcoin is a good start, but the real game changer is Dash. Dash features a number of benefits offered at the protocol level that BTC simply doesn't have, such as instant transactions and privacy. In addition, Dash is truly decentralized, not relying on any third party to dictate its development. The biggest reason, though, to get involved with Dash is ease of use. Evolution, scheduled for release in 2017, makes crypto easy to use for anyone, just like paypal. Dash truly is a cash alternative, perfect for use in Latin America.

  4. Unfortunately bitcoin is still very little used in Brazil in the physical stores, bitcoin's education path here is still long, but it brings great opportunities because Brazil is one of the countries with the greatest penetration in social networks and has experienced serious inflationary crises. We are now in the greatest economic crisis in history, libertarian currency here has great potential.

  5. This video is pretty disgusting, to clasify freedom as being able to buy from Walmart.com or get a cheaper Iphone, is a very distorted way to look at things.
    True bitcoin can get away from protectionism and that's fine, but is NOT freedom. In all cases is serving to give more money to corporations that push governments to keep funding dictators. So in all, Bitcoin is helping fund their own financial slavery.

  6. While bitcoin is a better money, it will never solve the problems created by money. Please investigate a resource based economy.

  7. Bitcoin is a decentralised system backed by mathematics, open source code, cryptography and the most powerful and secure decentralized computational network on the planet, orders of magnitude more powerful than google and government combined. There is a limit of 21 million bitcoins (divisible in smaller units). "Backed by Government" money is not backed by anything and is infinitely printed at will by Central Banks. Bitcoin is limited and decentralized.

  8. Check out some of Bitcoin's characteristics.
    Receive and transfer money, from cents (micropayments) to thousands:
    * Almost for free (a few cents fee).
    * Privacy (no need to expose personal information)
    * Securely (encrypted cryptographically and can’t be confiscated)
    * Instantly (from seconds to a few minutes)
    * Open source (auditable by anybody)
    * Worldwide (from anywhere to anywhere on the planet)
    * Peer-to-peer (no intermediaries with a cut)
    * Public ledger (transparent, seen by everybody)
    * Decentralized (distributed with no single point of failure)
    * No chargebacks-No fraud ('push' vs' 'pull' transactions).
    And that’s just as currency, Bitcoin has many more uses and applications.

  9. Nobody, no individual and no central power or government can control, manipulate, ban or kill a worldwide distributed open-source peer-to-peer cryptographically secured decentralised system.
    Bitcoins will continue to increase in value, more than gold and silver, there will only be 21 million bitcoins ever, they are cryptographically and mathematically secured, it is decentralized, so can't be banned, co-opted or confiscated/stolen by any central group or government, you hold your own private keys.

  10. I have a doubt, while you can buy an iPhone using bitcoin, doesn't the government find out that you've imported something at customs?

  11. Good to see digital currency helping to liberate people, but Bitcoin is not the best digital currency. Zec and Monero have their shortcoming but at least both anonymous by default. Dash is my favourite, it's the closest to using real cash (in that it is fungible), allows anonymous payments and it has the best chance of succeeding long term due to the built in funding incentives, governance system and it's new evolution release planned for next year will see it way ahead of the game – imo!

  12. does not the goods go through V and B customs and the tariff is applied and payment is required before receiving the goods?

  13. does not the goods go through V and B customs and the tariff/tax is applied and payment is required before receiving the goods? I smell BS

  14. Often in Latin America, governments raid your bank account to pay off their excessive debts or inflation eats away at your retirement. Bitcoin makes perfect sense.

  15. Am pro bitcoin but the truth of the matter is that govertment will crackdown on its use, as their looses on thievery…sorry…taxes and fees reaches an intorrelant level… then the guns…i mean laws…will cone out… drive up the cost of using bitcoin legally…and drive it underground.

  16. The pursuit of liberty has spawned digital currencies. I'm glad that Bitcoin is getting a lot of attention. However being 1st and biggest isn't always best. DASH appears to have reinvented a faster, more private system of payments. This will address governments attempt to crack down via the ability to track Bitcoin wallets from a public blockchain. Time will tell, but I've now upgraded to DASH.

  17. Muito bom! Brasil precisa Bitcoin! I have been saying for a while now that Latin America is where Bitcoin will take root the fastest because Latin Americans need a way to not only escape government corruption but also need the benefits of a monetary union like the US or Europe. People should be able to travel freely all over the Americas (and the world) without having to pay absurd exchange fees and fall prey to the countless middlemen in the global financial system.

    It should also help that the largest remittance corridor in the world is between the US and Mexico.

  19. Good for them I'm really positive about Bitcoin hopefully everyone stands up and doesn't let the feds or irs to change it. If that's even possible.
