"What is clear from visiting El Zonte and talking to the community leaders is that Bitcoin is not something you can sprinkle on a town and make it come to life. Alone, it is not a sufficient tool to empower a population. Yes, it is true that Bitcoin helped a small village change the world. But without Valenzuela, without Martinez, without Peterson, without Mama Rosa, and without entrepreneurs willing to take risks like Rubio and Karla, no change would have happened."

"The Village and the Strongman" is an exceptional piece written by Alex Gladstein, detailing Bitcoin's journey in El Salvador from new hope in a small village to a new law by an increasingly authoritarian government.
