Salvadoran teen becomes Bitcoin teacher and no longer earns ‘6 dollars a day’

A Salvadoran teen shares his journey of completing El Salvador’s bitcoin diploma program, Mi Primer Bitcoin, which means My First Bitcoin. Now he has returned to his former high school to teach 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, is supported by the El Salvador Ministry of Education., He was allowed to leave his life behind in construction work “earning $6 a day”.

Moran revealed that he has been working since he was “11 years old”, mainly in construction and tourism, and he could never understand how Salvadoran citizens worked so hard for low pay.

“I’m trying to explain why people in my country do so much work for so little money,” Moran said on Twitter. He also said that he didn’t work for much money at all:

“It was no longer possible for me to earn $6 a day, so I quit without knowing that there was an opportunity ahead.”

Moran explained that his school put out a call for students interested in taking the bitcoin diploma course “one day” – which he “applied for and excelled in”.

Moran revealed that he now “leads bitcoin education” in his hometown, at his former high school, Antonio J. Alfaro trains and teaches bitcoin degrees to a “group of 8 senior professors” at the school.

El Salvador’s director of education, Gilberto Motto, told Cointelegraph in August 2022 that the government is focused on ensuring bitcoin education across the country, especially for teenagers.

“If we can reach every 16-year-old or 17-year-old in the country, we will effectively educate the entire country in one year because that demographic is really strategic. They go home and talk to their parents, their aunts, their uncles, their younger brothers and sisters.
