Documenting Hyperbitcoinization El Salvador – Bitcoin Magazine: Bitcoin News, Articles, Charts, and Guides


As a video producer during the past 15 years, I’ve always been passionate about helping people tell their stories. From producing Bravo TV reality shows to crafting documentaries, I’ve been behind the camera for it all. I’ve seen firsthand how personal stories bring us together, and help us feel connected, even in a sometimes very disconnected-feeling world. With the growth we’ve seen this year in bitcoin adoption — and El Salvador making bitcoin legal tender — I knew I needed to capture these stories. It’s a transition that Salvadorans and all of us will never experience again, and as a Bitcoiner since 2017, I’ve been dreaming of seeing bitcoin in everyday use for years. I certainly never thought I’d see it in my lifetime.

This series, titled “I am Satoshi” celebrates the extraordinary stories that wouldn’t be possible without Nakamoto’s incredible innovation. When my team began planning, we knew we had to start with El Salvador, and document this transition.

My Director of Photography, Ryan Van Ert, and I were first introduced to Enrique Berrios, a local dentist. Enrique started a foundation that accepts bitcoin to help residents get critical dental procedures who may not be able to afford them. You can see Enrique’s story in our first video: Bitcoin Smiles.
