Salvadoran teenager becomes Bitcoin teacher, no longer earning ‘6 dollars a day’

A Salvadoran teenager shares his journey of completing El Salvador’s Bitcoin diploma program, Mi Primer Bitcoin, meaning My First Bitcoin. Now, he has returned to his former high school to educate the teachers about Bitcoin (BTC).

In a series of tweets on July 8, 18-year-old Gerardo Moran revealed that El Salvador’s Bitcoin diploma program, Mi Primer Bitcoin, which is backed by El Salvador’s Ministry of Education, allowed him to leave behind his life in construction “earning 6 dollars a day.”

Moran revealed that he is now “leading Bitcoin education” in his hometown, training and teaching the Bitcoin Diploma to a “group of 8 senior professors,” at his former high school, Antonio J. Alfaro school.
