El Salvador and Venezuela now share an intimate bond, that of cryptocurrencies. For Venezuela, it’s a grass roots movement that many in the government likely fear. For El Salvador, it was a decisive act of Congress (image below) that barely slowed for a sort of filibuster attempt.
If you’ve been a reader of Project Hope articles for any significant amount of time then you’re probably aware of our connection with Venezuela. Here’s a Steemit article by daiel (image below) from 4 years ago:

With Venezeulans fighting for their freedom (and their lives) leading the charge, and El Salvadorans’ congressional win, crypto in the region is getting to be a big deal. Thus tends to be the case when the Wall Street Journal covers a story.

Just imagine if Bitcoin was legal throughout the world. History books may very well look back on this historic day and point to non-traditional economic developments like independent aviation economies. How different will shuttling flights between El Salvador and Venezuela be in the coming year? It's a trip not much further than New York City to Chicago; and trekking to LA is nearly twice as far!
Oh yeah, and that whole green initiative thing came up in a Twitter Spaces (hosted by Nic Carter) discussion attended by the President of Venezuela while votes were being cast.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
