This. It's fully understandable from past experience that Salvadorans - like many Latin Americans - would view a govt-owned digital custodian holding a shrinking dollar amount of bitcoin on their behalf as the equivalent of a bank they can't trust. Of course, they'll withdraw.
Replying to @mikejcasey @marzsv
Algunos salvadoreño no le interesa perder dinero cuando es regalado el efectivo quiere hay personas que venden su bitcoin de $30 y los venden a $25 y hasta $20 ellos no confianza en dólar digital por lo que los banco siempre hay hecho mal...

Look, I want El Salvador's experiment to succeed (even with concerns about how it was handled), but bitcoiners cheering this are kinda stupid. Why are ppl lining up at BTC ATMs at this moment in crypto markets? Bitcoin is now 20% less in USD from when govt bought it 2 wks ago.
Lines are building up at El Salvador's #Bitcoin ATMs 🧡

Zuckerberg is just another version of Murdoch. Regulatory arbitrage. Political favours in return for media coverage. Nothing has changed much since Citizen Kane, just amplified by automation
Woah. This claim in must-read except from new book on Peter Thiel. We knew this secret meeting happened shortly after Zuckerberg's "free expression" speech at Georgetown. FB denies "agreement" happened - it would be an astounding abuse of market power by FB and Trump admin. /1

Here’s one session I’m looking forward to: @davidzmorris of @CoinDesk on the geopolitics of mining with @danhwang88 and more. Sadly @BitcoinBroski had to drop from the panel. #Mainnet2021

Solid analysis.
1/21 At this point I'm convinced that the SEC's current regulatory stance on crypto is more someone's personal political agenda. Highly technical, educated people, informed on this space cannot reach the conclusion that defi platforms can simply 'come in and register'

It can feel like crypto is always in a semi-permanent state of bubble and hype. I think that's a feature, not a bug. This week's #MoneyReimagined podcast. coindesk.com/policy/2021/09/… via @coindesk

You hear that, Ethereum 2.0 devs: your work is done!
BREAKING (1/2): @SEC_Enforcement sources tell @FoxBusiness the logic of the agency's case v @Ripple is that the company's infrastructure is STILL being built out so XRP -- the token which was used to finance the thing -- is considered a security. @ethereum infrastructure is

Seriously, as @HesterPeirce rightly told @CGasparino, this is dangerous hair-splitting from @SECGov, a post-facto excuse for actions taken and not taken.

I'm not taking a position on whether Ethereum is a security or XRP isn't, just that the distinction, if it exists, surely does not lie in the idea that ever-evolving blockchain protocols can at some point be "finished."

As usual, @MarcHochstein deftly applies the language of traditional banking to crypto so the poor souls trapped in the former can understand the promise of the latter. And he outlines some exciting new DeFi credit models "DeFi and the 3 Cs" coindesk.com/markets/2021/09… via @coindesk
