Paco De La India is a passionate advocate for the transformative power of Bitcoin in the modern world. An intrepid traveler and educator, he embarked on the ambitious "Run With Bitcoin" journey, aiming to traverse 40 countries in 400 days, relying solely on Bitcoin for his expenses. This mission, inspired by the influential book "The Bitcoin Standard" by Saifedean Ammous, wasn't just a personal challenge but a testament to the potential of Bitcoin as a truly global currency.
Throughout his travels, Paco has been more than just a tourist. He has actively engaged with local communities, hosting Bitcoin meetups, opening thousands of wallets, and assisting numerous businesses in embracing Bitcoin as a viable payment method. His YouTube channel chronicles these adventures, offering a firsthand look at the challenges and triumphs of living on Bitcoin in diverse global settings.
Paco's journey has been marked by both the generosity of the Bitcoin community and the challenges of navigating a world not yet fully attuned to cryptocurrency. From being mugged in Johannesburg to facing bear markets and a global pandemic, his resilience and unwavering belief in Bitcoin's potential have seen him through. In countries like Zimbabwe and Zambia, he has witnessed the life-changing impact of Bitcoin, offering a solution to economic challenges and restrictive financial systems.
Beyond his Bitcoin endeavors, Paco is a true global citizen, having explored over 200 cities and sharing his experiences and insights with the world.
