El Salvador Launches Bitcoin, Lightning Dev Training Office

El
 Salvador’s government has launched another initiative repping its support for Bitcoin adoption and development of the broader network. Plan B was an initiative the Bitcoin Office launched in Lugano, Switzerland last year to facilitate Bitcoin adoption. The city has already made Bitcoin and USDT de facto legal tender, and enabled BTC acceptance with over 150 merchants in the city. The Plan B fellowship will provide the opportunity for El Salvador’s best and brightest computer science students to be trained by the biggest names in bitcoin from around the world,” stated the Office. The lecturers and mentors involved are yet to be announced. The current project will collaborate with the university of Don Bosco in Soyapango, which was recently freed from gang control after Bukele’s brutal crackdown on gang violence that began last year. El Salvador was the first country to officially install Bitcoin as legal tender, with the Central African Republic following suit months later.
