Today CK sits down with Jose Lemus, the founder of IBEX Mercado, to talk about the exciting developments in the El Salvadorian Bitcoin space! At the time of this recording, Bitcoin is about to be announced as legal tender in the country, and so by the time you listen to this conversation, that will be official! While this is exciting news for El Salvador, its people, and future, there is still some way to go before Bitcoin and the Lightning Network will be able to truly spread in the country and impact its economy on a massive scale. Jose shares some of his insider perspectives on the El Salvadorian situation and we talk about some of the potential hurdles, Bitcoin's scalability, the vision for IBEX, and the forthcoming months following the big announcement about Bitcoin becoming legal tender. Jose is dedicated and passionate about the spread of this technology and his long-term perspective and big picture mentality are hugely inspiring. For all this, be sure to listen in with us today!
