Petro wants to try to displace cocaine in the country with Bitcoin
As we all know, Colombia is sometimes known for the enormous production of cocaine, and this is one of the main concerns. Colombia is the world’s largest producer of this drug. Now Petro has the bankers, the oil and mining sector and the most powerful cocaine suppliers against him. It will certainly not be an easy presidency for Petro.
Exciting: Petro’s speech contained topics that are often ignored by other politicians in the country, including the mother of all cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin.
However, his opponent Rodolfo Hernández spoke out against recommending the people of Colombia to buy Bitcoin. It remains to be seen whether the drug cartels will easily accept this transition.
It was also pointed out that the energy matrix of Colombia is already dominated by hydropower, which could certainly help to mine Bitcoin with renewable energy.
What if the Pacific coast used the gradient of the rivers in the western mountains to produce all the energy of the coast and replace cocaine with energy for cryptocurrencies? The cryptocurrency is pure information and therefore energy.
