Jehudi Castro Sierra is the advisor to the president of Columbia on the matter of the latest technology and innovations. He recently revealed that he has been taking a keen interest in blockchain and Bitcoin. It has been 12 years since Bitcoin was first introduced on a public level. In the beginning, many investors did not find the technology very viable.
However, this year Bitcoin has managed to register an ATH of $64,800. After a small correction period, BTC prices are once again started to move into the bullish lane. After China decided to pull back on Bitcoin mining farms, many other countries came forward to take advantage of the opportunity. Many countries in America are the biggest adopters of Bitcoin since that time.
Bitcoin has a Wide Range of Technical Advantages to Offer
During a recent interview with the crypto reporters, Sierra remarked on his approach towards Bitcoin. He explains that he became interested in Bitcoin due to its unmatched financial prowess. He further added that he has always viewed Bitcoin as a wonderful open-sourced network that is very beneficial for users.
He also claimed that after studying the subject of blockchain a little more, he realized the advantages that fintech innovation has to offer. He claims that he is still trying to learn more about Bitcoin and the entire project is a great way for the investors as well as developers who want to use it as a base layer code. Without telling too much, he added that Bitcoin is on the list of his priority projects.
According to Sierra, Bitcoin is a sandbox of innovation and opportunities for the stakeholders. He further added that there are many use cases for the citizens of Columbia that can make the financial transaction more secure than ever before. It is worth noting that ever since its conception, the Bitcoin network has never been hacked, unlike several other DeFi projects.
Sierra hinted that it is highly likely that the government of Columbia is going to take measures to make Bitcoin trading and transactions more popular in the region. Commenting on the matter of El Salvador adopting Bitcoin as a legal tender, he said that it is a bold move for the Central American nation. According to Sierra, there are many risks involved with the crypto industry; however, it is still a great way to introduce new revenue streams in Columbia.
