An NGO called Motiv is helping this poor Peruvian town turn around.
The tool it uses to move funds, bank the unbanked and change people’s lives is Bitcoin.
I visited in September last year. Here’s an insight from my experience there. Blew me away.
please check my Youtube for more, similar (ish) content.
The pace is a little slower here but I'm still finding my voice.

Good work Joe - I mentioned this before, but it would be wonderful if Motiv set up a full verification node in these communities in order to level the local knowledge base up a notch. Some of those kids might be interested in learning how to manage the node and the open source OS behind it on top of guitar lessons. A local Lightning node would likely follow if things really catch on. In a few years time, we might have a few Peruvian stackers from Quebrada Verde joining us here on @sn.
This story delivers much more value and hope for the future than any ETF and Wall St. adoption.

There is now Peru's first ever lightning node which came online a few days ago set up by a Peruvian.
I would probs get in the way as a middleman but could you try to reach out to Motiv with your idea? https://motiv.ngo/
reply
Done. I reached out to motiv.ngo with this proposal and added that I would fund the equipment purchase for the first (or the next) full verification hardware node. Let's see where this goes.
