El Salvador is Leading the Way Towards a Better World

In a country where 70% of the population is excluded from the financial system, #Bitcoin is hope. The Republic of El Salvador is leading the way toward a better world.
Michael Saylor Responds to Senator Elizabeth Warren’s ‘Attack’ on Bitcoin
Earlier this week, US Senator Elizabeth Warren, threw several jabs at Bitcoin by stating that BTC mining was consuming more energy than entire countries. She also raised several concerns that digital assets such as Bitcoin, were providing avenues for criminals to orchestrate cyber attacks such as that which affected Colonial Pipeline early last month.
In his response to Senator Warren’s statements on Bitcoin, Michael Saylor reiterated that BTC empowers billions with property rights. As a result, energy consumption should be ‘the least of our concerns’. His full response to Senator Warren’s concerns on Bitcoin can be found below.
We finally have the technology with Bitcoin to empower billions of poor and working-class people with property rights, economic security, & freedom from financial repression by the state & institutions. The fact that we use electricity to do this should be the least of our concerns.
