For his part, the bitcoiner and investor Samson Mow argued that Latin America is ready for the adoption of BTC:

“Bitcoin can be used without permission, it is immutable and accessible to anyone. It is a carrier asset, which means you can hold it if you have it in your possession. If we can get more countries to embrace Bitcoin as a form of sound money and get out of currencies, out of the IMF and World Bank, then there will be more prosperity for the region.”

“Just pay something with a $100 bill. Even though it’s worth less and you buy less, the teller is probably still inspecting it as carefully as if it were just as valuable as before. It actually looks more like a $50 bill now and will soon be a $20 bill. However, they still don’t realize it.”
